What book would you recommend for an undergraduate wanting to learn the basics of topology? I've come across several books that claim to give an introduction to the subject, but I wasn't sure which one(s) to pick.
Here are some of the books I came across:
- Introduction to Topology - Bert Mendelson
- Basic Topology - M.A. Armstrong
- First Concepts of Topology - William G. Chinn
- Topology Without Tears - Sidney A. Morris
- Topology - James Munkres
They don't go over the exact same topics, some are more in-depth than others, some seem to target slightly different audiences etc. What would be right for me (not necessarily from that list)? To give some more background, I want to learn topology because I feel it will be somewhat helpful in the field of Computer Vision.
