Abstract

For a path-connected space X, a well-known theorem of Segal, May and Milgram asserts that the configuration space of finite points in n with labels in X is weakly homotopy equivalent to ΩnΣnX. In this paper, we introduce a space n(X) of intervals suitably topologized in n with labels in a space X and show that it is weakly homotopy equivalent to ΩnΣnX without the assumption on path-connectivity.
