Voraussetzungen / BesonderesYou should know the basics of point-set topology.

Useful to have (though not absolutely necessary) basic knowledge of the fundamental group and covering spaces (at the level usually covered in the course "topology").

Some knowledge of differential geometry and differential topology is useful but not absolutely necessary.

Some (elementary) group theory and algebra will also be needed.
