During the first six months, the student will learn about singular homology and cohomology theories, in order to complete his knowledge about basic algebraic topology. Then we will start the study of topological K-theory and we will show explicitly that it is a generalized cohomological theory that obeys all the axioms of Eilenberg-Steenrod, except for the dimension one.
