... are you wanting to update the nLab entry? or is it something else? – some guy on the street Apr 2 '13 at 20:22
ahem, nlab entry – some guy on the street Apr 2 '13 at 20:24
I am guessing this is a reference request, perhaps the citations at the bottom are what Dr. Stasheff is looking for. I would think that this was known before those papers, but I am not confident. – Sean Tilson Apr 2 '13 at 23:18
I'm not sure why I'm telling you this, but I think that Husemoller-Moore-Stasheff is a good reference... – John Palmieri Apr 3 '13 at 0:21
@Sean Tilson I have added a reference-request tag – Giuseppe Oct 31 '13 at 6:49
