Topology, for a few years, has been some of the most intriguing and influential fields of analysis in smooth arithmetic. even supposing its origins could be traced again numerous hundred years, it used to be Poincaré who "gave topology wings" in a vintage sequence of articles released round the flip of the century. whereas the sooner background, also known as the prehistory, is additionally thought of, this quantity is principally interested by the more moderen background of topology, from Poincaré onwards.
As might be noticeable from the checklist of contents the articles hide quite a lot of subject matters. a few are extra technical than others, however the reader with no good deal of technical wisdom should locate lots of the articles obtainable. a few are written by way of specialist historians of arithmetic, others via historically-minded mathematicians, who are inclined to have a special viewpoint.
