The method of Algebraic Topology consists in describing the geometrical structure of a topological space, associating it an algebraic system, typically a group or sequence of groups. To continuous map between the spaces corresponding homomorphisms between groups associated with them. In this project we will develop the singular homology groups. Also study important applications, such as Brouwer's fixed-point theorem and non-existence of non-zero vector field in spheres of dimension pair. (AU)
