    Contemporary Mathematics
    Volume: 371985; 161 pp
    MSC: Primary 55; Secondary 57;

    This book, which is the proceedings of a conference held at Memorial University of Newfoundland, August 1983, contains 18 papers in algebraic topology and homological algebra by collaborators and associates of Peter Hilton. It is dedicated to Hilton on the occasion of his 60th birthday. The various topics covered are homotopy theory, \(H\)-spaces, group cohomology, localization, classifying spaces, and Eckmann-Hilton duality.

    Students and researchers in algebraic topology will gain an appreciation for Hilton's impact upon mathematics from reading this book.
