This booklet provides a geometrical advent to the homology of topological areas and the cohomology of tender manifolds. the writer introduces a brand new classification of stratified areas, so-called stratifolds. He derives easy options from differential topology similar to Sard's theorem, walls of solidarity and transversality. in accordance with this, homology teams are developed within the framework of stratifolds and the homology axioms are proved. this suggests that for great areas those homology teams trust usual singular homology. in addition to the normal computations of homology teams utilizing the axioms, straight forward structures of vital homology periods are given. the writer additionally defines stratifold cohomology teams following an concept of Quillen. back, yes very important cohomology sessions happen very clearly during this description, for instance, the attribute periods that are developed within the ebook and utilized in a while. the most primary effects, Poincare duality, is sort of a triviality during this strategy. a few basic invariants, corresponding to the Euler attribute and the signature, are derived from (co)homology teams. those invariants play an important function in one of the most remarkable leads to differential topology. particularly, the writer proves a unique case of Hirzebruch's signature theorem and offers as a spotlight Milnor's unique 7-spheres. This ebook relies on classes the writer taught in Mainz and Heidelberg. Readers will be accustomed to the fundamental notions of point-set topology and differential topology. The ebook can be utilized for a mixed creation to differential and algebraic topology, in addition to for a fast presentation of (co)homology in a direction approximately differential geometry.
