Homologi och Eulerkarakteristik
Student paper other, 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Originally the Euler characteristic was defined by triangulation and Eulers formula. The Euler characteristic is a homotopy invariant. The reason for this is that the Euler characteristic also can be computed using homology groups. In this essay we describe the connection between these two means of calculating the Euler characteristic. Basic concepts in homological algebra and homotopy theory are discussed. This essay is a sequel to my earlier essay Euler och hans matematik.
