The project intends to study the first ideas from topology and the basics concepts from algebraic topology, in particular fundamental group and covering spaces, moreover we will study some classical theorems including the Borsuk-Ulam Theorem and aplications. The mean purpose of this project is to prepare the student for the study of more strong tools from algebraic topology in a way to made a master in such subject. (AU)
