Alpine Perspectives on Algebraic Topology
About this Title
Christian Ausoni, Kathryn Hess and Jérôme Scherer, Editors
This volume contains the proceedings of the Third Arolla Conference on Algebraic Topology, which took place in Arolla, Switzerland, on August 18–24, 2008.
This volume includes research papers on stable homotopy theory, the theory of operads, localization and algebraic K-theory, as well as survey papers on the Witten genus, on localization techniques and on string topology—offering a broad perspective of modern algebraic topology.
Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in various aspects of modern algebraic topology.
