Homotopy Theories and Model Categories

Publisher: University of Notre Dame
Number of pages: 56

Description:
This paper is an introduction to the theory of model categories, which was developed by Quillen. We have tried to minimize the prerequisites needed for understanding this paper; it should be enough to have some familiarity with CW-complexes, with chain complexes, and with the basic terminology associated with categories.

This is an expository paper on homotopy colimits and homotopy limits. These are constructions which should arguably be in the toolkit of every modern algebraic topologist. Many proofs are avoided, or perhaps just sketched.
