This is a continuation course to Algebraic Topology I. The course will cover more advanced topics in algebraic topology including: cohomology of spaces, operations in homology and cohomology, duality. See also Paul Brian's previous course

We will have oral exam between 11.08.2023 and 19.08.2023. We will post will post a document with sample questions in late June.

- Sample question - Sample questions for the oral exam.

General topology, linear algebra, singular homology of topological spaces (e.g. as taught in Algebraic topology I). Some knowledge of differential geometry and differential topology is useful but not absolutely necessary.
