Summary 
"Topology is a large subject with many branches broadly categorized as algebraic topology, pointset topology, and geometric topology. Pointset topology is the main language for a broad variety of mathematical disciplines. Algebraic topology serves as a powerful tool for studying the problems in geometry and numerous other areas of mathematics. Elements of Topology provides a basic introduction to pointset topology and algebraic topology. It is intended for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students with working knowledge of analysis and algebra. Topics discussed include the theory of convergence, function spaces, topological transformation groups, fundamental groups, and covering spaces.The author makes the subject accessible by providing more than 250 worked examples and counterexamples with applications. The text also includes numerous endofsection exercises to put the material into context" Provided by publisher.
