## Cohomology of GroupsAs a second year graduate textbook, Cohomology of Groups introduces students to cohomology theory (involving a rich interplay between algebra and topology) with a minimum of prerequisites. No homological algebra is assumed beyond what is normally learned in a first course in algebraic topology. The basics of the subject are given (along with exercises) before the author discusses more specialized topics. |
