## Overview

A Guide to Topology is an introduction to basic topology for graduate or advanced undergraduate students. It covers point-set topology, Moore-Smith convergence and function spaces. It treats continuity, compactness, the separation axioms, connectedness, completeness, the relative topology, the quotient topology, the product topology, and all the other fundamental ideas of the subject. The book is filled with examples and illustrations. Students studying for exams will find this book to be a concise, focused and informative resource. Professional mathematicians who need a quick review of the subject, or need a place to look up a key fact, will find this book to be a useful resource too.
