- Read Munkres 1.1 carefully and write down any questions you have.
- Choose 2 portions of problems to work on (ie like 2a and 5c) from Munkres
(Exercises 1.1 p. 14-15). Be prepared to present your work in class.
- Research the web for some information about the Euler characteristic.
Explain why it is called a topological invariant instead of a geometric
invariant, and give examples of the Euler characteristic of specific
objects. Be sure to give proper reference.
- (Graduate Problem)
No path can be found between the seven Konigsberg (now Kaliningrad, in Russia)
bridges, since this is exactly what Euler proved. Search on the web or in
a library, find useful references, and briefly summarize why no such path
can be found. Be sure to give proper reference.
