Description:
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.

Differential forms provide a modern view of calculus. They also give you a start with algebraic topology in the sense that one can extract topological information about a manifold from its space of differential forms. It is called cohomology.

by - Springer
A paper 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.

Book cover: The Homology of Iterated Loop SpacesThe Homology of Iterated Loop Spaces
by - Springer
A thorough treatment of homology operations and of their application to the calculation of the homologies of various spaces. The book studies an up to homotopy notion of an algebra over a monad and its role in the theory of iterated loop spaces.
