Abstract: Let and denote, respectively, the spaces of strong shift equivalences and shift equivalences over a subset of a ring which is closed under addition and multiplication. For example, let be the integers or the nonnegative integers . For any principal ideal domain , we prove that the continuous map is a homotopy equivalence. The methods also show that any inert automorphism, i.e., an element in the kernel of can be represented by a closed loop in which in is spanned by a triangulated -disc supporting a positive -cocycle. These cocycles are used in work of Kim-Roush that leads to a counterexample to Williams' lifting problem for automorphisms of finite subsystems of subshifts of finite type.
