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.

This is an introduction to simplicial sets and simplicial homotopy theory with a focus on the combinatorial aspects of the theory and their geometric/topological origins. Accessible to students familiar with the fundamentals of algebraic topology.
by Danny Calegari - Mathematical Society of Japan
This is a comprehensive introduction to the theory of stable commutator length, an important subfield of quantitative topology, with substantial connections to 2-manifolds, dynamics, geometric group theory, bounded cohomology, symplectic topology.

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.
