KnowledgeThe student who successfully completes the course will be able to demonstrate a solid knowledge of: - methods from Combinatorial Algebraic Topology (as Discrete Morse functions, CW-Morse Theory) - higher homotopy theory (Whithead and Hurewicz theorems, K(pi,1)-spaces) - locally trivial bundles (classifying spaces, obstruction theory, spectral sequences).
Assessment criteria of knowledgeDuring the oral exam, or seminar presentation, the student must be able to demonstrate his/her knowledge of the course material, having uderstood the main methods and, in case of seminar presentation, being able to understand similar situations where the main tools are used.
- Final oral exam
- Final essay
The evaluation is usually based on a seminar presentation about a subject which is strictly related to the course contents.
Delivery: face to face
- attending lectures
- participation in seminar
