# Combinatorial topology

### From Conservapedia

**Combinatorial topology** is the older name (pre-1970) for what is now called algebraic topology, a branch of mathematics.

The classic text is P.S. Alexandrov, "Combinatorial Topology," first translated from the Russian version and published in 1956.

Combinatorial or algebraic topology is considered more advanced than general topology, and is typically taught in graduate-level mathematics programs.
