Elements of Homotopy Theory

  • Albert S. Schwarz
Part of the Grundlehren der mathematischen Wissenschaften book series (GL, volume 307)


This chapter and the next are adapted from a lecture published in the Proceedings of the Third Physics Workshop, held at the Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Physics, Moscow, in 1975. They focus on the uses of homotopy theory in physics, and especially on the calculation of homotopy groups. The next chapter summarizes briefly the ways in which homotopy theory can be applied to quantum field theory.
