Lecture# Serre model structure on Top

Description

This lecture explores the Serre model structure on Top, focusing on right and left homotopy. The instructor discusses the weak homotopy equivalence, retractions of relative complexes, and the significance of the 2-out-of-3 property in this context.

Cofibration

In mathematics, in particular homotopy theory, a continuous mapping between topological spaces is a cofibration if it has the homotopy extension property with respect to all topological spaces . That is, is a cofibration if for each topological space , and for any continuous maps and with , for any homotopy from to , there is a continuous map and a homotopy from to such that for all and . (Here, denotes the unit interval .

Quillen adjunction

In homotopy theory, a branch of mathematics, a Quillen adjunction between two C and D is a special kind of adjunction between that induces an adjunction between the Ho(C) and Ho(D) via the total derived functor construction. Quillen adjunctions are named in honor of the mathematician Daniel Quillen. Given two closed model categories C and D, a Quillen adjunction is a pair (F, G): C D of adjoint functors with F left adjoint to G such that F preserves cofibrations and trivial cofibrations or, equivalently by the closed model axioms, such that G preserves fibrations and trivial fibrations.

Fibration

The notion of a fibration generalizes the notion of a fiber bundle and plays an important role in algebraic topology, a branch of mathematics. Fibrations are used, for example, in Postnikov systems or obstruction theory. In this article, all mappings are continuous mappings between topological spaces. A mapping satisfies the homotopy lifting property for a space if: for every homotopy and for every mapping (also called lift) lifting (i.e. ) there exists a (not necessarily unique) homotopy lifting (i.e.

Derived functor

In mathematics, certain functors may be derived to obtain other functors closely related to the original ones. This operation, while fairly abstract, unifies a number of constructions throughout mathematics. It was noted in various quite different settings that a short exact sequence often gives rise to a "long exact sequence". The concept of derived functors explains and clarifies many of these observations. Suppose we are given a covariant left exact functor F : A → B between two A and B.

Chain complex

In mathematics, a chain complex is an algebraic structure that consists of a sequence of abelian groups (or modules) and a sequence of homomorphisms between consecutive groups such that the of each homomorphism is included in the kernel of the next. Associated to a chain complex is its homology, which describes how the images are included in the kernels. A cochain complex is similar to a chain complex, except that its homomorphisms are in the opposite direction. The homology of a cochain complex is called its cohomology.
