Course description and aims

The set and topology play an important role in mathematical and computing science. The objective of this course is to explain the fundamentals of the point set topology based on the knowledge about set provided in "Set and Topology I" in the first quarter, and also for the students to built backgrounds to apply the idea of point set topology in mathematical and computing science.

Student learning outcomes

The students are expected to understand the fundamentals of mathematical methods to handle topological structure appeared in mathematical and computing science and also to be able to apply them to practical problems.

Keywords

topology, topological space, neighborhood, continuous, Hausdorff space, separation axioms, connected, compact, complete

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

The lectures provide the fundamentals of the point set topology. The students are strongly encouraged to register for "MCS.T222:Exercises in Set and Topology II" simultaneously which offers the recitation session for this course.
