Simplicial Homology Groups
Having defined polyhedron, complex, and orientation for complexes in the preceding chapter, we are now ready for the precise definition of the homology groups. Intuitively speaking, the homology groups of a complex describe the arrangement of the simplexes in the complex thereby telling us about the “holes” in the associated polyhedron.
