Abstract

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses a few elementary facts about an abstract group {π1 (X,*)}. It shows that an abstract group does not depend on*, provided X is arcwise connected, and it is a homotopy type invariant. On the surface it appears that π1(X, *) depends both on the space X and the chosen point *.
