Homotopy Theory: Relations with Algebraic Geometry, Group Cohomology, and Algebraic K-theory

As part of its series of Emphasis Years in Mathematics , Northwestern University hosted an International Conference on Algebraic Topology. The purpose of the conference was to develop new connections between homotopy theory and other areas of mathematics. This proceedings volume grew out of that event. Topics discussed include algebraic geometry, cohomology of groups, algebraic $K$-theory, and $\mathbb{A}^1$ homotopy theory. Among the contributors to the volume were Alejandro Adem, Ralph L. Cohen, Jean-Louis Loday, and many others. The book is suitable for graduate students and research mathematicians interested in homotopy theory and its relationship to other areas of mathematics.
