Homotopy Theories and Model Categories

Publisher: University of Notre Dame
Number of pages: 56

Description:
This paper is an introduction to the theory of model categories, which was developed by Quillen. We have tried to minimize the prerequisites needed for understanding this paper; it should be enough to have some familiarity with CW-complexes, with chain complexes, and with the basic terminology associated with categories.
