By J. M. Boardman

This quantity offers the lawsuits of the convention held in honor of J. Michael Boardman's sixtieth birthday. It brings into print his vintage paintings on conditionally convergent spectral sequences. during the last 30 years, it has turn into obtrusive that many of the inner most questions in algebra are most sensible understood opposed to the historical past of homotopy conception. Boardman and Vogt's idea of homotopy-theoretic algebraic constructions and the idea of spectra, for instance, have been benchmark breakthroughs underlying the improvement of algebraic $K$-theory and the new advances within the thought of causes. the quantity starts off with brief notes by means of Mac Lane, could, Stasheff, and others at the early and up to date heritage of the subject.But the majority of the amount comprises learn papers on themes which were strongly motivated via Boardman's paintings. Articles supply readers a shiny feel of the present nation of the idea of 'homotopy-invariant algebraic structures'. additionally incorporated are significant foundational papers by means of Goerss and Strickland on purposes of tools of algebra (i.e., Dieudonne modules and formal schemes) to difficulties of topology. Boardman is understood for the intensity and wit of his principles. This quantity is meant to mirror and to rejoice these fantastic features.

"It provides a delicate portrait of a very good person. It describes effectively and intelligibly on a nontechnical point the realm of mathematical principles within which Hilbert created his masterpieces. And it illuminates the heritage of German social background opposed to which the drama of Hilberts existence was once performed.
