This quantity offers with the idea of finite topological areas and its

relationship with the homotopy and easy homotopy thought of polyhedra.

The interplay among their intrinsic combinatorial and topological

structures makes finite areas a useful gizmo for learning difficulties in

Topology, Algebra and Geometry from a brand new viewpoint. In particular,

the equipment constructed during this manuscript are used to review Quillen’s

conjecture at the poset of p-subgroups of a finite staff and the

Andrews-Curtis conjecture at the 3-deformability of contractible

two-dimensional complexes.

This self-contained paintings constitutes the 1st detailed

exposition at the algebraic topology of finite areas. it's intended

for topologists and combinatorialists, however it can be suggested for

advanced undergraduate scholars and graduate scholars with a modest

knowledge of Algebraic Topology.

Proof. Suppose x ∈ A. A subset U of X/A is open if and only if q −1 (U ) is open in X. Since q −1 (q(Ux ∪ A)) = Ux ∪ A ⊆ X is open, q(Ux ∪ A) ⊆ X/A is an open set containing qx. Therefore Uqx ⊆ q(Ux ∪ A). The other inclusion follows from the continuity of q since x ∈ A: if y ∈ A, there exist a, b ∈ A such that y ≤ a and b ≤ x and therefore qy ≤ qa = qb ≤ qx. If x ∈ / A, q −1 (q(Ux )) = Ux , so q(Ux ) is open and therefore Uqx ⊆ q(Ux ). The other inclusion is trivial. 7. Let X be a ﬁnite space and A ⊆ X a subspace.

3. Let (X, x0 ) be a pointed ﬁnite T0 -space. Then the edge-path group E(K(X), x0 ) of K(X) with base vertex x0 is isomorphic to H (X, x0 ). 24 3 Basic Topological Properties of Finite Spaces Proof. Let us deﬁne ϕ : H (X, x0 ) −→ E(K(X), x0 ), e1 e2 . . en −→ [e1 e2 . . en ], ∅ −→ [(x0 , x0 )], where [ξ] denotes the class of ξ in E(K(X), x0 ). To prove that ϕ is well deﬁned, let us suppose that the loops ξ1 ξ2 ξ3 ξ4 and ξ1 ξ4 are close, where ξ2 = e1 e2 . . en , ξ3 = e1 e2 . . em are monotonic H-paths.

Recall that A = {x ∈ X | ∃ a ∈ A with x ≥ a} denotes the closure of A. We will denote by A = {x ∈ X | ∃ a ∈ A with x ≤ a} = Ua ⊆ X, the open hull of A. 6. Let x ∈ X. If x ∈ A, Uqx = q(Ux ∪ A). If x ∈ q(Ux ). Proof. Suppose x ∈ A. A subset U of X/A is open if and only if q −1 (U ) is open in X. Since q −1 (q(Ux ∪ A)) = Ux ∪ A ⊆ X is open, q(Ux ∪ A) ⊆ X/A is an open set containing qx. Therefore Uqx ⊆ q(Ux ∪ A). The other inclusion follows from the continuity of q since x ∈ A: if y ∈ A, there exist a, b ∈ A such that y ≤ a and b ≤ x and therefore qy ≤ qa = qb ≤ qx.
