Serge Ballif MATH 527 Homework 11 November 28, 2007 Problem 1. Calculate the homology groups of S 3 with two unlinked circles deleted. Call our space X and the two deleted circles A and B . We can view a space homoeomorphic to the one above, by selecting any point of A on S 3 and stere- ographically projecting from that point into 3 . The stereographic image of A is then a line in 3 , and the stereographic image of B is an ellipsoid (homeo- morphic to a circle) that does not go around the image of A . We know that 3 with a line deleted deformation retracts onto a cylinder. 3 with a circle deleted deformation retracts onto the wedge of a sphere and a circle (from a pre- vious homework problem). Our space deformation retracts onto a combination of these, namely a wedge of a cylinder, sphere, and circle. The space further deformation retracts to the wedge of two circles and a sphere (since the cylinder deformation retracts to a circle). Hence, our space X will have the same homology groups as S 1 S 1 S 2 .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
