## Topology (MATH31052)

- Monday 9:00-10:00, Alan Turing Building G.205
- Friday 13:00-15:00, Alan Turing Building G.205

### Strike

During the next weeks your lecturers might have to go on strike to defend the USS pension scheme. I will take part in the strike action. In this leaflet you can find some information on the dispute. More detailed information can be found here (from the Leeds UCU branch), and here. If the employers do not start to negotiate, then the following toplogy lectures and tutorials will be effected by the strike: Friday 23.2, Monday 26.2, Monday 5.3, Monday 12.3, Friday 16.3.

#### Reading assignments during the strike

- 23.2., 26.2.:
- Section 3, pages 3-6; problem sheet 3
- 5.3.:
- Section 4: Hausdorff Spaces
- 12.3., 16.3.:
- Section 5: Compactness, pages 3-7; problem sheets 5 and 6

Note, that all reading assignments are examinable.
