Simplicial sets are a fundamental tool used basically everywhere in modern homotopy theory.

Categorical models of homotopy type theory Bas Spitters References: ComiXology Thousands of Digital Comics. GoerssJohn F. The theory of model categories permits us to derive certain well-behaved functors, the so-called Quillen functors, in not necessarily additive contexts.

Interspersed throughout are many results and ideas well-known to experts, but uncollected in the literature. This book supplies a modern exposition of these ideas, emphasizing model category theoretical techniques. This is particularly important because the book unifies many seemingly disparate results and approaches. Showing of 2 reviews. With the development of Quillen’s concept of a closed model category and, in particular, a simplicial model category, this collection of Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life.


Add both to Cart Add both to List. It covers basic topics such as simplicial groups, Postnikov towers, and bisimplicial sets, as well as such advanced topics as homotopy limits and colimits, cosimplicial spaces, and homotopy coherence. I don’t think it has any prerequisites per se, since all used notions are explained, however without familiarity with category theory and classical algebraic topology it can be too much to swallow. An extensive background in topology is not assumed.

Can I ask you about a possible short prerequisiste book for this one? Simplicial sets have fundamental applications throughout mathematics, whenever homotopy theory plays a role. February 14 Post as a guest Name. Besides, I know that there are a lot of people working in homotopy theory who have probably at least used the book as a reference. As an upshot of the first eight talk we can give a precise theorem boerss that simplicial sets and topological spaces model the same homotopy theory.
