Introduction to Homotopy. has been added to your Cart. the author has pulled off a real tour de force.

Introduction to Homotopy. could serve as an excellent route into some of the most exciting topics in mathematics. Shows a well-marked trail to homotopy theory with plenty of beautiful scenery worth visiting, while leaving to the student the task of hiking along it. Most of us wish we had had this book when we were students. Series: Fields Institute Monographs (Book 9).

Introduction to Homotopy Theory. A co-publication of the AMS and Fields Institute. This text is based on a one-semester graduate course taught by the author at The Fields Institute in fall 1995 as part of the homotopy theory program which constituted the Institute's major program that year. The author has attempted to make this text a self-contained exposition. Precise statements and proofs are given of folk theorems which are difficult to find or do not exist in the literature.

Description: This text is based on a one-semester graduate course taught by the author at The Fields Institute in the Autumn of 1995 as part of the homotopy theory program, which constituted the institute's major program that year.

Discussed here are the homotopy theory of simplicial sets, and other basic topics such as simplicial groups, Postnikov towers, and bisimplicial sets. The more advanced material includes homotopy limits and colimits, localization with respect to a map and with respect to a homology theory, cosimplicial spaces, and homotopy coherence. Interspersed throughout are many results and ideas well-known to experts, but uncollected in the literature. Intended for second-year graduate students and beyond, this book introduces many of the basic tools of modern homotopy theory

Homotopy type theory is a new branch of mathematics that combines aspects of several different fields in a surprising way. It is based on a recently discovered connection between homotopy theory and type theory.

Homotopy type theory is a new branch of mathematics that combines aspects of several different fields in a surprising way. It touches on topics as seemingly distant as the homotopy groups of spheres, the algorithms for type checking, and the definition of weak ∞-groupoids. Homotopy type theory offers a new univalent foundation of mathematics, in which a central role is played by Voevodsky’s univalence axiom and higher inductive types.
