Homotopy theory is an important sub-field of algebraic topology. It is mainly concerned with the properties and structures of spaces which are invariant under homotopy. Chief among these are the homotopy groups of spaces, specifically those of spheres. Homotopy theory includes a broad set of ideas ...

### Homotopy type of some lattices with top and bottom removed

The only reaction to this question on math.SE was 21 views in 4 days, so I decided to repost it here. I am not changing anything. There was an interesting question on MO which OP removed by some ...

### Trouble with Stable Equivariant Profinite Homotopy Theory

I've heard that there are some problems in developing a good formalism for stable equivariant homotopy theory (either from the spectral mackey functors perspective or from the orthogonal spectra ...

### Inverse galois problem and étale homotopy

Is there any relation between étale homotopy theory (Grothendieck-Galois theory) and the inverse Galois problem?...I mean...in classical homotopy theory, every finite group $G$ realizes as a "Galois ...

### Is $S^1\vee S^1$ an Eilenberg-Mac Lane Space to a Homotopy Purist?

I believe that $S^1\vee S^1$ is the Eilenberg-Mac Lane space $K(\mathbb{Z}\ast\mathbb{Z},1)$. One can prove this by constructing its universal cover and observing that it is contractible. My question ...

### Examples of maps with nontrivial Hopf invariant but Lusternik-Schnirelmann category of the cofiber doesn't increase?

Let $A$ be a suspension and $X$ be a space with Lusternik-Schnirelmann category $n$ and let $\alpha: A\to X$. It is easy to see that the cofiber $C_\alpha$ has $\mathrm{cat}(C_\alpha) \leq n+1$. One ...

### Non-homotopic cdga maps with same effect on cohomology

Let $f, g : \mathcal{A} \to \mathcal{B}$ be maps of commutative differential graded algebras. An easy way to tell if they are homotopic is by looking at their effect on cohomology. However, if $f$ ...

### Criterion for a equalizer to be a homotopy equalizer in spaces

Let $f,g\colon X\rightarrow Y$ be maps between spaces. I am looking for criteria for the equalizer of $f$ and $g$ to be a homotopy equalizer and I am happy to get answers for whatever model category ...

### Saturated classes and cofibrantly generated model structures

There seem to be two definitions of what a saturated class should be: A class of morphisms closed under retracts, pushouts and transfinite composition. A class of monomorphisms containing all ...

### S^1-bundles over non-aspherical manifolds

Is it true that an S^1-bundle over a non-aspherical manifold is still non-aspherical?

### Homotopical interpretation of flatness?

I have read a discussion (in a less common language) which discussed a homotopical interpretation of flatness, which went something like: A map of commutative algebras is flat if pushing it out ...

### Representability of Weil Cohomology Theories in Stable Motivic Homotopy Theory

My understanding is that one purpose of stable motivic homotopy theory is to emulate classical stable homotopy theory. In particular, we would like Weil cohomology theories to be representable by ...

### Interaction of Grothendieck Construction with Coherent Nerve

There are a number of Grothendieck constructions: one for discrete categories, one for enriched categories (see Tamaki's paper here) and one for quasicategories (see the Unstraightening and ...

### Topology on $\mathcal{C}(X,Y)$ to work with homotopy

We know that the compact open topology on $\mathcal{C}(X,Y)$ is a good choice for topology on the set of continuous maps, but this seems really efficient, both naively and with respect to existence of ...

### On Johansson's Theorem on homotopy equivalences of 3-manifolds

Johansson's theorem states the following: Given $f:M_1\rightarrow M_2$ (not a pair map) an homotopy equivalence between 3-manifolds with incompressible boundary. Let $V_i$ be the components of the ...

### free group actions on a contractible topological space [closed]

Let $\Sigma_k$ be the symmetric group on $k$-letters. Let $W$ be a contractible topological space with a free $\Sigma_k$-action (from the left). Let $X$ be a $CW$-complex and let $X^k$ be the ...

### Bar/Cobar Adjunction Between Modules and Comodules

There is a pretty well known, and widely written about, adjunction between augmented algebras and coaugmented coalgebras given by taking the bar construction on algebras and the cobar construction on ...

### Serre fibration vs Hurewicz fibration

What are the simplest/ typical examples of a Serre fibration which is not a Hurewicz fibration? Is it something pathological? Sorry if the question is too elementary for MO.

### Difficulties with descent data as homotopy limit of image of Čech nerve

Apologies if this question is inappropriate for MO. It is not a research level question in any of the topics it addresses, I just don't see how a novice can go about answering it alone (I've tried ...

### Complete Segal operads and dendroidal sets

There is a Quillen equivalence between the model category presenting Lurie's $\infty$-operads (which are inner fibrations $\mathcal{C}\to\mathrm{N}(\mathbf{F})$ satisfying certain conditions) and the ...
Let's will write $K_n$ for the Eilenberg-MacLane space $K(\mathbb{Z},n)$. I remind that $K_n$ is equivalent to the loop space of $K_{n+1}$. Let’s consider the map \$\smallsmile:K_n\times K_m \to K_{n+...
