ABSTRACT. The book, based on the author's lectures at the Independent
sity of Moscow, gives an introduction to differential and algebraic topolog
author presents classical notions and methods of topology, which are indisp
for specialists and useful for research mathematicians and theoretical ph
In particular, the author introduces ideas and results related to the no
manifolds, cell spaces, coverings and fibrations, homotopy groups, homolo
cohomology, intersection index, etc.
The book is useful to students specializing in mathematics and the
