This welcome boon for college kids of algebraic topology cuts a much-needed relevant direction among different texts whose therapy of the class theorem for compact surfaces is both too formalized and complicated for these with out exact history wisdom, or too casual to have the funds for scholars a finished perception into the topic. Its devoted, student-centred strategy information a near-complete evidence of this theorem, extensively widespread for its efficacy and formal attractiveness. The authors current the technical instruments had to install the strategy successfully in addition to demonstrating their use in a truly dependent, labored instance. learn more...

For a fixed z0 2 D, let ˝; ˝ 0 and ˛; ˇ be chosen as in the beginning of this section. '/. '/. z1 /, and generators ˛1 ; ˇ1 . Because ' is a homeomorphism there is no restriction on ˝1 , other than it be contained in D. For this reason, if z1 is sufficiently close to z0 we can choose ˝1 so that it contains ˛. ˛1 / in ˝10 .

For the moment, we do not care about the order. 6. V; S / is a triangulation W S ! s/ D sg for all s 2 S iff the following properties hold: (D1) Every edge a is contained in exactly two triangles A. (D2) For every vertex ˛, the edges a and triangles A containing ˛ can be arranged as a cyclic sequence a1 ; A1 ; a2 ; A2 ; : : : ; Am 1 ; am ; Am , in the sense that ai D Ai 1 \ Ai for all i , 2 Ä i Ä m, and a1 D Am \ A1 , with m 3. (D3) K is connected, in the sense that it cannot be written as the union of two disjoint nonempty complexes.

Let us now assume that E is arcwise connected (which is the case for surfaces). Let a and b be any two distinct base points. Since E is arcwise connected, there is some path ˛ from a to b. Then, to every closed path based at a corresponds a closed path 0 D ˛ 1 ˛ based at b. E; a/ ! E; b/. E; b/ ! E; a/. E; b/ are isomorphic.
