This project deals of the study of two technics for calculating the homology groups of a space X: the singular homology groups and the homology group of a CW-complex, named cellular homology, and their properties. The technics of cellular homology are more geometrics than singular homology for computing the homology groups of a CW-complexe. But, for studying in more depth the cellular homology, it is necessary to study the singular homology. Some applications are presented, such as Brower Fixed-Point Theorem and non-existence of a nonzero vector field on 2n-dimensional sphere.
