# Homotopy of compact non-orientable surfaces

Jump to: navigation, search
This article describes the value (and the process used to compute it) of some homotopy invariant(s) for a topological space or family of topological spaces. The invariant is homotopy and the topological space/family is compact non-orientable surface

## Statement

This article describes the homotopy groups, including the set of path components $\pi_0$, the fundamental group $\pi_1$, and the higher homotopy groups $\pi_k$ of the compact non-orientable surface $P_n$, which is defined as the connected sum of $n$ copies of the real projective plane $\mathbb{P}^2(\R)$.

### Set of path components

Each of the spaces $P_n$ is a path-connected space, so its set of path components is a one-point space.

### Fundamental group
