This is a graduate course in algebra covering various specialized topics that have applications in geometry. There are no geometry prerequisites. We will only discuss structures at the level of vector spaces. Occasionally, we may give brief remarks about how these algebraic structures are defined on manifolds, and what the difficulties are, for the geometry/topology students, but there will be no geometry questions on the assignments. It is all just algebra.
Easiest course at Waterloo. There isn't even a required textbook... no exam, 5 assignments? Heaven!
