Introduction to Characteritic Classes and Index Theory
by Jean-Pierre Schneiders
Publisher: Universidade de Lisboa 2000
Number of pages: 236
This text deals with characteristic classes of real and complex vector bundles and Hirzebruch-Riemann-Roch formula. We will present a few basic but fundamental facts which should help the reader to gain a good idea of the mathematics involved. The reader is assumed to have a good knowledge of homological algebra and topology.

Jacob Lurie presents the foundations of higher category theory, using the language of weak Kan complexes, and shows how existing theorems in algebraic topology can be reformulated and generalized in the theory's new language.

This book concerns the study of singular spaces using techniques of geometry and topology and interactions among them. The authors cover intersection homology, L2 cohomology and differential operators, the topology of algebraic varieties, etc.

A thorough treatment of homology operations and of their application to the calculation of the homologies of various spaces. The book studies an up to homotopy notion of an algebra over a monad and its role in the theory of iterated loop spaces.
by Allen Hatcher - Cambridge University Press
Introductory text suitable for use in a course or for self-study, it covers fundamental group and covering spaces, homology and cohomology, higher homotopy groups, and homotopy theory generally. The geometric aspects of the subject are emphasized.
