The writer, a number one determine in algebraic topology, offers a contemporary remedy of an extended verified set of questions during this very important learn quarter. The book's imperative objective--and major result--is the category theorem on k-variants and boundary invariants, which complement the classical photo of homology and homotopy teams, in addition to computations of sorts which are got by means of using this theorem. study mathematicians in algebraic topology can be attracted to this new try to classify homotopy varieties of easily hooked up CW-complexes.
