Product Description


From reviews:

"… a book filling an obvious gap in the literature and the authors have done an excellent job on it. No monograph or expository paper has been published on this topic in the last twenty-eight years." - Analele Universitatii din Timisoara

"… is clearly presented and a brief summary preceding every chapter is useful to the reader. The book should prove enlightening to a broad range of readers including prospective students and researchers who want to apply simplicial techniques for whatever reason." - Zentralblatt MATH

 "… they succeed. The book is an excellent account of simplicial homotopy theory from a modern point of view […] The book is well written. […] The book can be highly recommended to anybody who wants to learn and to apply simplicial techniques and/or the theory of (simplicial) closed model categories." - Mathematical Reviews

Excellent book! 19 Jun 2001
By Justin R. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Gives a well-written and concise treatment of developments in an area of topology that has seen considerable progress in the past 50 years. The only other general expository books in this area are more than 20 years old. This is particularly important because the book unifies many seemingly disparate results and approaches. Even classic constructions (like the Hurewicz homomorphism) are give modern (and very concise) interpretations. I strongly recommend this book to students and researchers in algebraic topology.

math problems are hard! 17 Jan 2010
By divine crushing hand - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
i still can't figure out how you can explain why someone is gay using the math in this book. admittedly i have problems understanding long division so about the only thing that made sense to me in this book where the page numbers. which run in sequential order thank god.
