Boundary operator, Simplicial complex, Singular homology


     This paper identified the homology groups  of -simplex, -dimensional simplicial complex and -complex. We show that a -simplex  is a point or a vertex, -simplex  is a line or an edge, a -simplex  is defined to be a triangle with its interior included and a -simplex  is a solid tetrahedron. It is easy to continue to any -simplex . The aims of this paper are to construct and defined Singular Homology Groups and Simplicial Homology Groups in terms of -dimensional simplicial complex  and a topological space . We followed the historical analysis mathematical method. We found that simplexes are building blocks of polyhedron, both approaches yield the same results, and the homology groups  are quotient groups of -cycle groups  and -boundary groups .
