**Publisher**: Springer 1972**ISBN/ASIN**: 3540059040**ISBN-13**: 9783540059042**Number of pages**: 175

**Description**:

This is the first of a series of papers devoted to the study of iterated loop spaces. Our goal is to develop a simple and coherent theory which encompasses most of the known results about such spaces. We begin with some history and a description of the desiderata of such a theory.
