Basic Homological Algebra by Scott Osbourne is a nice beginners text. Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered.

Here is a work that combines the two. Both of these newer books discuss all three periods see also Kashiwara—Schapira, Categories and Sheaves.

It was written soon after Cartan and Eilenberg, which probably explains the old-fashioned style.

As usual, the rule is one reference per post. The author provides a treatment of Homological Algebra alebra approaches the subject in terms of its origins in algebraic topology. There are some real golden nuggets of mathematics hidden in its pages.

An Introduction to Homological Algebra

This change makes sense pe- gogically, for there has been a change in the mathematics population since ; today, virtually all mathematics graduate students have learned so- thing about functors and categories, and so I can now take the categorical viewpoint more seriously. There honological two books by Gelfand and Manin, Homological algebraaround pages and Methods of homological algebraaround pages. Other books in this series.

They keep you on your toes. Second, one must be able to compute these things with spectral sequences.

First, one must learn the language of Ext and Tor. Mathematical Analysis I Vladimir A. Warning to the reader: Part IV of Lang’s ‘Algebra’, especially Chapter XX, covers almost everything you want to learn about homological algebra algsbra a first course.

I have used Weibel in the past as my reference in a graduate course, but I think the less confident students can have trouble getting into it. Like everything by Rotman, it’s a wonderful and enlightening read. Over the past four decades, he has published numerous successful texts of introductory character, mainly in the field of modern abstract algebra and its related disciplines.


Older books are not without value, including Cartan-Eilenberg, but it’s hard to recommend them currently when books by Weibel, Rotman, and Gelfand-Manin are available. The second one has a different emphasis, with chapters on simplicial sets and homotopical algebra instead of the above-mentioned topics. It contains many references for further study and also to original sources. In this new edition the book has been updated and revised throughout and new material on sheaves and cup products has been added.

Rotman No preview available – All together, a popular classic has been turned into a new, much more topical and comprehensive textbook on homological algebra, with all the great features that once distinguished the original, very much to the belief [of its] new generation of readers. Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews.

I agree the best reference is Weibel, and GM’s Methods is really good, but for starting out I’d recommend Mac Lane’s Homology which is just about homological algebra.
