**Special Course in Functional Analysis: (Non-)Commutative Topology**

by Ville Turunen

**Publisher**: Aalto TKK 2008**Number of pages**: 83

**Description**:

In this book you will learn something about functional analytic framework of topology. And you will get an access to more advanced literature on non-commutative geometry, a quite recent topic in mathematics and mathematical physics. The prerequisite for this course is some elementary understanding of Banach spaces.

**Noncommutative Localization in Algebra and Topology**

by

Noncommutative localization is a technique for constructing new rings by inverting elements, matrices and more generally morphisms of modules. The applications to topology are via the noncommutative localizations of the fundamental group rings.
