 Definition: An arc A is a space homeomorphic to the unit interval [0, 1]. The end points of A are the two points and q of A such that Ap and Aq are connected; the other points of A are called interior poin...

 Definition: If G is abelian and finitely generated, then there is a fundamental theorem to the effect that G is the direct sum of two subgroups, H and T. H is a free abelian of finite rank, and T is a subgroup...

 Definition: Let a and b be points of S^2. Let A be a compact space, and let f: A > S^2 {a, b} be a continuous map. If f is nulhomotopic, then a and b lie in the same component of S^2  f(A).

 Definition: Let X be a space that is the union of the subspaces X_a, for a in J. The topology of X is said to be coherent with the subspaces X_a provided a subset C of X is closed in X if C intersect X_a is c...

 Definition: Given G, suppose we are given a family of generators {x_a}_(a in J) of generators for G. Let F be the the free group on the elements {x_a}. Then the obvious map h(x_a) = x_a of these elements into ...
