The academic year 1996-97 was designated as a special year in Algebraic Topology at Northwestern University (Evanston, IL). In addition to guest lecturers and special courses, an international conference was held entitled "Current trends in algebraic topology with applications to algebraic geometry and physics". The series of plenary lectures included in this volume indicate the great breadth of the conference and the lively interaction that took place among various areas of mathematics. Original research papers were submitted, and all submissions were refereed to the usual journal standards.


  • A paper prepared by C. Rezk on the Hopkins-Miller theorem.
  • A set of problems presented at a special problem session held at the conference.


Graduate students and research mathematicians working in algebraic topology.
