E 'Infinite' Ring Spaces and E 'Infinite' Ring Spectra
by J. P. May
Publisher: Springer 1977
Number of pages: 280
The theme of this book is infinite loop space theory and its multiplicative elaboration. This is the appropriate framework for the most structured development of algebraic K-theory, by which we understand the homotopy theory of discrete categories, and one of the main goals of this volume is a complete analysis of the relationship between the classifying spaces of geometric topology and the infinite loop spaces of algebraic K-theory.

This book provides a detailed treatment of algebraic topology both for teachers of the subject and for advanced graduate students in mathematics. Most chapters end with problems that further explore and refine the concepts presented.

Browder-Novikov-Sullivan-Wall surgery theory investigates the homotopy types of manifolds, using a combination of algebra and topology. It is the aim of these notes to provide an introduction to the more algebraic aspects of the theory.

This is a comprehensive introduction to the theory of stable commutator length, an important subfield of quantitative topology, with substantial connections to 2-manifolds, dynamics, geometric group theory, bounded cohomology, symplectic topology.
