 This volume presents a crosssection of new developments in algebraic topology. The main portion consists of survey articles suitable for advanced graduate students and professionals pursuing research in this area. A great variety of topics are covered, many of which are of interest to researchers working in other areas of mathematics. In addition, some of the articles cover topics in group theory and homological algebra. Titles in this series are copublished with the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques.
