Learning outcomes
Knowledge
The student who successfully completes the course will have the ability to compute the homology and cohomology of simplicial and cellular complexes; (s)he will be able to demonstrate a solid knowledge of the applications of homology theory; (s)he will display advanced knowledge of Poincaré duality and of the notions of orientation and degree of a map between manifolds. (s)he will master the algebraic notions of Tor and Ext and know the statements in homology and cohomology of the universal coefficients theorem.
Assessment criteria of knowledge
The student will be asked to compute the homology and the cohomology ring of some topological spaces that can be realized as simplicial or cellular complexes. He will have to demonstrate a solid knowledge of homology and cohomology theory and their applications.
