**Model Categories and Simplicial Methods**

by Paul Goerss, Kristen Schemmerhorn

**Publisher**: Northwestern University 2004**Number of pages**: 46

**Description**:

There are many ways to present model categories, each with a different point of view. Here we'd like to treat model categories as a way to build and control resolutions. We're going to emphasize the analog of projective resolutions, simply because these are the sort of resolutions most people see first.
