Textbook: Differential Forms in Algebraic Topology, by R. Bott and L. Tu. Other texts that will be useful are Algebraic Topology by A. Hatcher and possibly Characteristic Classes by J. Milnor and J. Stasheff.
There will be no class on the following days: September 16, September 18, October 9. Classes will run through December 4 with a possibility of a make-up class some time during the semester.
Here are topics that I plan to cover in the course. Topics near the end of this list are probably wishful thinking.
