Description:
In 1970, Sullivan circulated a set of notes introducing localization and completion of topological spaces to homotopy theory, and other important concepts that have had a major influence on the development of topology. The notes remain worth reading for the boldness of their ideas, the clear mastery of available structure they command, and the fresh picture they provide for geometric topology.
