Because the paintings of Stasheff and Sugawara within the Sixties on attractiveness of loop house buildings on $H$-spaces, the idea of upper homotopies has grown to be a primary organizing precept in homotopy conception, differential graded homological algebra or even mathematical physics. This e-book provides the lawsuits from a convention hung on the social gathering of Stasheff's sixtieth birthday at Vassar in June 1996. It bargains a set of very prime quality papers and contains a few primary essays on themes that open new parts. it is beneficial properties comprise: available to a vast viewers drawn to arithmetic and physics; bargains a complete review of Stasheff's paintings; and, includes papers on very present examine themes, together with operads, combinatorial polyhedra and moduli areas.
