Abstract: We give an algebraicization of rational $S^1$-equivariant homotopy theory. There is an algebraic category of `` $\mathbb{T} $-systems'' which is equivalent to the homotopy category of rational $S^1$-simply connected $S^1$-spaces. There is also a theory of ``minimal models'' for $\mathbb{T} $-systems, analogous to Sullivan's minimal algebras. Each $S^1$-space has an associated minimal $\mathbb{T} $-system which encodes all of its rational homotopy information, including its rational equivariant cohomology and Postnikov decomposition.
