Lecture Description

In this video lecture, Prof. N.J. Wildberger gives a description of a variant to the proof of the Classification theorem for two dimensional combinatorial surfaces, due to John Conway and called the ZIP proof. Our approach to this is somewhat algebraic. We think about spheres with holes that are then zipped together rather than polygonal pieces which are glued together.

Course Description

In this course, Prof. N.J. Wildberger gives 26 video lectures on Algebraic Topology.  This is a beginner's course in Algebraic Topology given by Assoc. Prof. N J Wildberger of the School of Mathematics and Statistics, UNSW. It features a visual approach to the subject that stresses the importance of familiarity with specific examples. It also introduces 'rational curvature', a simple but important innovation. NJ Wildberger is also the developer of Rational Trigonometry: a new and better way of learning and using trigonometry.
