Why is algebraic topology so hard?

I don't, I just like the picture.

High order homotopy is frigging scary. Homology is much nicer as an extension of the basic material, but I never got into the subject.

Why is this not a capital offense? I'd love for my tax money to go towards frying these creepy fucks.

Because it gets increasingly non-intuitive as you move up to higher dimensions. It is pretty easy for 2-manifolds though.

Frogposters = r9k

Animeposters = weeaboos

Both horrible.

Nah, but a lot of us shivered when our prof started showing us his favorite groups from that table.

>>7646455

what's so scary about finitely generated abelian groups?

>>

>>7646455

Your prof's favorite groups are finite? What a pleb.

Because you're a retard? Algebraic Topology is so easy I testes out of it

>>7646467

How the fuck do you test out of Algebraic Topology as an undergrad, it was hard enough just getting them to let me take the course

There's always someone smarter than you, anon.

They don't let undergrads take prelim exams at many universities so you can't "test out of" alg top. But most math departments don't enforce prereqs so you could just take advanced alg. top or 3-manifold theory or whatever.
