Special Course in Functional Analysis: (Non-)Commutative Topology
by Ville Turunen
Publisher: Aalto TKK 2008
Number of pages: 83
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.

One of the principal aims of surgery theory is to classify the homotopy types of manifolds using tools from algebra and topology. The algebraic approach is emphasized in this book, and it gives the reader a good overview of the subject.

Mathematical gauge theory studies connections on principal bundles. The book provides an introduction to current research, covering material from Heegaard Floer homology, contact geometry, smooth four-manifold topology, and symplectic four-manifolds.
