Summary
This is the second of a three-volume set collecting the original and now-classic works in topology written during the 1950s-1960s. The original methods and constructions from these works are properly documented for the first time in this book. No existing book covers the beautiful ensemble of methods created in topology starting from approximately 1950, that is, from Serre's celebrated "singular homologies of fiber spaces.". Sample Chapter(s). Chapter 1: On manifolds homeomorphic to the 7-sphere 1 (153 KB). Contents: On Manifolds Homeomorphic to the 7-Sphere (J Milnor); Groups of Homotopy Sphe
