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.

The main purpose of these notes is to prove a duality theorem for cohomology of quasi-coherent sheaves, with respect to a proper morphism of locally noetherian preschemes. Various such theorems are already known. Typical is the duality theorem ...

Book cover: Equivariant Stable Homotopy TheoryEquivariant Stable Homotopy Theory
by - Springer
Our purpose is to establish the foundations of equivariant stable homotopy theory. We shall construct a stable homotopy category of G-spectra,and use it to study equivariant duality, equivariant transfer, the Burnside ring, and related topics.
