This book is the result of a conference held to
examine developments in homotopy theory in honor of Samuel Gitler in
August 1993 (Cocoyoc, Mexico). It includes several research papers and
three expository papers on various topics in homotopy theory.

The research papers discuss the following:

- application of homotopy theory to group theory
- fiber bundle theory
- homotopy theory

The expository papers consider the following topics:

- the Atiyah-Jones conjecture (by C. Boyer)
- classifying spaces of finite groups (by J. Martino)
- instanton moduli spaces (by R. J. Milgram)
