### Course description and aims

The main subject of this course is basic concepts in general topology. First, general topology on sets will be introduced in terms of system open sets, closed sets, and system of neighborhoods, and then continuity for mapping between topological spaces will be discussed. Next we explain various natural topology, such as metric topology, relative topology, quotient topology and product topology. Finally, we discuss various axioms of separability, such as Hausdorff property. This course will be succeeded by “Introduction to Topology IV” in the fourth quarter.
The notion of topological space is essential for describing continuity of mappings. It is significant not only in geometry but also algebra and analysis.

### Student learning outcomes

Students are expected to
・Understand various equivalent definitions of topology
・Understand that continuity of maps between topological spaces are described in terms of topology
・Understand various kinds of topologies that naturally arises under various settings
