1:25 pm - At Least I Didn't Get Differential Equations...  
Snagged from theodosia.

I have no idea what this means...



If I were a Springer-Verlag Graduate Text in Mathematics, I would be William S. Massey's A Basic Course in Algebraic Topology.

I am intended to serve as a textbook for a course in algebraic topology at the beginning graduate level. The main topics covered are the classification of compact 2-manifolds, the fundamental group, covering spaces, singular homology theory, and singular cohomology theory. These topics are developed systematically, avoiding all unecessary definitions, terminology, and technical machinery. Wherever possible, the geometric motivation behind the various concepts is emphasized.

Which Springer GTM would you be? The Springer GTM Test

Oh good. We're back down to only one copy of the math-text quiz results.

I checked in a little bit ago to find three or four copies up from you, and was worried you were stuck in some horrible temporal feedback loop.

This would have been very disconcerting as I would have felt compelled to help somehow, but have no idea how to disrupt time-loops.
