Homological algebra is, to put it very briefly, the theory of abelian categories and the
functors between them. It has played a very important role in algebraic topology.
Its influence has gradually expanded and nowadays plays a vital role in commutative algebra,
algebraic geometry, algebraic number theory, representation theory, mathematical physics, operator algebras,
complex analysis, and in the theory of partial differential equations.
Here is a syllabus and a bibliography available.
Topics for the exam:
- Free, projective, flat, torsion-free, injective and divisible modules
- Categories and functors
- Injective and projective resolutions, derived functors
- Group cohomology
- Spectral sequences
- Triangulated categories
