viii homology teams. A weaker outcome, enough however for our reasons, is proved in bankruptcy five, the place the reader also will locate a few dialogue of the necessity for a extra robust in­ variance theorem and a precis of the facts of the sort of theorem. Secondly the emphasis during this booklet is on low-dimensional examples the graphs and surfaces of the identify because it is there that geometrical instinct has its roots. The objective of the ebook is the research in bankruptcy nine of the homes of graphs in surfaces; a few of the difficulties studied there are pointed out in short within the advent, which incorporates an in­ formal survey of the cloth of the ebook. some of the result of bankruptcy nine do certainly generalize to raised dimensions (and the final equipment of simplicial homology idea is avai1able from prior chapters) yet i've got restricted myself to at least one instance, specifically the concept that non-orientable closed surfaces don't embed in third-dimensional house. one of many significant result of bankruptcy nine, a model of Lefschetz duality, definitely generalizes, yet for an efficient presentation the sort of gener- ization wishes cohomology thought. except a short point out in connexion with Kirchhoff's legislation for an electric community i don't use any cohomology the following. Thirdly there are many digressions, whose function is very to light up the primary argument from a moderate dis­ tance, than to give a contribution materially to its exposition.
