First, one must learn the language of Ext and Tor. I guess, thanks to Freyd-Mitchell en. Rotman’s book gives a treatment of homological algebra which approaches the subject in terms of its origins in algebraic topology.

In this brand new edition the text has been fully updated and revised throughout and new material on sheaves and abelian categories has been added. Selected pages Page 2.

As usual, the rule is one reference per post. The third period, – volving derived categories and triangulated categories, is still ongoing. Probability Essentials Jean Jacod. The Best Books of The first one covers the standard basic topics, and also has chapters on mixed Hodge structures, perverse sheaves, and D-modules.

It is very thorough and detailed yet well motivated and conversational with a particularly engaging style. Warning to the reader: The standard example is of course Weibel which I’ll leave for someone else to describe.

It seems difficult to find good introductions that are freely available online, but a nice set of lecture notes can be be found on Schapira’s web page, here.

But for later books the choice depends a lot on your preferred style and whether you want to study derived categories, Algevra, etc.

I agree this homologicl funny as a joke, but I would have appreciated the authour’s effort in listing a detailed account of the lemma as in “Algebra” by Robert Ash.

Account Options Sign in. The second one has a different emphasis, with chapters on simplicial sets and homotopical algebra instead of the above-mentioned topics. Complex Geometry Daniel Huybrechts.

Review quote From the reviews of the second edition: There is also an interesting lectures on homological algebra of I. I’ve always enjoyed the way it is organized, somehow. Who likes to balance Tor by hand? I would recommend it to anyone who has not seen much of the subject, as a starting point before going on to more advanced texts. I like Rotman and particularly Weibel precisely because they DON’T do this-the connections with topology are strongly emphasized.

Back cover copy With a wealth of examples as well as abundant applications to Algebra, this is a must-read work: In this new edition the book has been updated and revised throughout and new material on sheaves and cup products has been added.

Description Graduate mathematics students will find this book an easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide to the subject. Now, in the current second edition, the author has reworked the original text considerably. Older books are not without value, including Cartan-Eilenberg, but it’s algebrw to recommend them currently when books by Weibel, Rotman, and Gelfand-Manin are available.

I liked Rotmans book a lot. Learning Homological Algebra is a two-stage affair.
