**E 'Infinite' Ring Spaces and E 'Infinite' Ring Spectra**

by J. P. May

**Publisher**: Springer 1977**ISBN/ASIN**: 3540081364**ISBN-13**: 9783540081364**Number of pages**: 280

**Description**:

The theme of this book is infinite loop space theory and its multiplicative elaboration. This is the appropriate framework for the most structured development of algebraic K-theory, by which we understand the homotopy theory of discrete categories, and one of the main goals of this volume is a complete analysis of the relationship between the classifying spaces of geometric topology and the infinite loop spaces of algebraic K-theory.
