1.Classical and Modern Topology. 2.Topological Phenomena in Real World Physics
Abstract
Hystory of topology is discussed uncluding the Golden Age Period (19501970), the Period of Decay (19701980) and the Period of Recovery in 80s and 90s based on the ideas borrowed from physics community. In the second part recent result of the present author, A.Malcev, I Dynnikov and A.Zorich concerning new observable topological phenomena in normal metals and topology of quasiperiodic functions on the plane are presented
