Unformatted text preview: 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 R 3 . The stereographic image of A is then a line in R 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 R 3 with a line deleted deformation retracts onto a cylinder. R 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...
