Lectures: Monday 12:30-13:15 and Wednesday 13:15-14:45 (or 13:30-15:00) Online with Moodle
This page contains informations and pdf-files for this lecture and its exercise class.
Exercises: Wednesday 12:30-13:15 in Seminarraum 7
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.
The chapters are as follows:
Chapter 1: Introduction to homological algebra.
Chapter 2: Rings and modules.
Chapter 3: Categories and functors.
Chapter 4: Resolutions and derived functors.
Chapter 5: Homology and cohomology of groups.
Here is a syllabus and a bibliography available.
Exercises: There will be exercises for this lecture. Participation is possible for
those present in the first meeting at the beginning of March. In general, presence is
mandatory for the exercise class. Students being absent more than once will be signed out.
This will not apply in case of illness with a medical certificate. The rules may also change
due to the present COVID-19 situation.
There are 33 exercises in total. For each week everyone is supposed to prepare three exercises,
i.e., we start with 1,2,3 for the second week, then 4,5,6 for the third week, then 7,8,9, etc.
