Jean-Marc Cordier and Timothy Porter:

**
Shape Theory: Categorical Methods of Approximation**,

This is a Dover reprint of the 1989 book.

This in-depth treatment uses shape theory as a "case study" to illustrate situations common to many areas of mathematics, including the use of archetypal models as a basis for systems of approximations. It offers a unified, consolidated presentation of research on category theory, shape theory, and the study of topological algebras.

Ronald Brown:

**
Topology & Groupoids**,

This is a retitled, revised, refined and expanded edition of **Topology**,
previously published in 1968 and 1988.

It may be ordered at
Booksurge

The book combines a geometric and a categorical approach,
where the latter allows clear analogies between areas of mathematics,
such as topology and algebra.
This is seen very clearly in the chapters on
covering spaces and orbit spaces.

ISBN: 1-4196-2722-8.

*Our aim for this book is to give a connected and we hope readable account
of the main features of work on extending to higher dimensions the theory
and applications of the fundamental group.*
