Book cover: Topology and Physics: A Historical EssayTopology and Physics: A Historical Essay
by - arXiv
In this essay we wish to embark on the telling of a story which, almost certainly, stands only at its beginning. We shall discuss the links and the interaction between one very old subject, physics, and a much newer one, topology.
