The Geometry of Iterated Loop Spaces
by J. P. May
Publisher: Springer 1972
Number of pages: 175
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.

Jacob Lurie presents the foundations of higher category theory, using the language of weak Kan complexes, and shows how existing theorems in algebraic topology can be reformulated and generalized in the theory's new language.

These notes are a supplement to a first year graduate course in manifold theory. These are the topics covered: Manifolds (Smooth Manifolds, Projective Space, Matrix Spaces); Basic Tensor Analysis; Basic Cohomology Theory; Characteristic Classes.

This book provides a detailed treatment of algebraic topology both for teachers of the subject and for advanced graduate students in mathematics. Most chapters end with problems that further explore and refine the concepts presented.

This text deals with characteristic classes of real and complex vector bundles and Hirzebruch-Riemann-Roch formula. We will present a few basic but fundamental facts which should help the reader to gain a good idea of the mathematics involved.
