Higher homotopy invariants for spaces and maps

David Blanc, Mark W Johnson and James M Turner

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 21 (2021) 2425–2488
Abstract

For a pointed topological space X, we use an inductive construction of a simplicial resolution of X by wedges of spheres to construct a “higher homotopy structure” for X (in terms of chain complexes of spaces). This structure is then used to define a collection of higher homotopy invariants which suffice to recover X up to weak equivalence. It can also be used to distinguish between different maps f : X Y which induce the same morphism f: πX πY.
