He defines the homotopy category \(h(\mathcal{E}_k)\) of smooth \(k\)schemes and shows that it plays the same role for smooth \(k\)schemes as the classical homotopy category plays for differentiable varieties. It is shown that certain expected properties are satisfied, for example, concerning the algebraic \(K\)theory of those schemes. In this way, advanced methods of algebraic topology become available in modern algebraic geometry. Titles in this series are copublished with Société Mathématique de France.
