A Primer on Homotopy Colimits
by

Number of pages: 72

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.

Book cover: The Geometry of Iterated Loop SpacesThe Geometry of Iterated Loop Spaces
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.
