In homology theory, you assign to each topological space a sequence of abelian groups, called homology groups, which encodes the […]

The end of the first phase: King’s Buildings Union After the opening of Geology’s Grant Building, it would be some time before there were any other major academic building developments on the campus. The University Union had, however, been lobbying for a permanent building there since 1929, having spent seven years in the shared wooden […]
