The seminal `MIT notes' of Dennis Sullivan have been issued in June 1970 and have been largely circulated on the time, yet basically privately. The notes had a massive impression at the improvement of either algebraic and geometric topology, pioneering the localization and crowning glory of areas in homotopy thought, together with P-local, profinite and rational homotopy idea, the Galois motion on delicate manifold buildings in profinite homotopy idea, and the K-theory orientation of PL manifolds and bundles. this can be the 1st time that this significant paintings has really been released, and made to be had to someone attracted to topology.
