Groups, homotopy and configuration spaces (Tokyo 2005)

Editors: Norio Iwase, Toshitake Kohno, Ran Levi, Dai Tamaki and Jie Wu

Fred Cohen

This volume is the proceedings of the conference "Groups, Homotopy and Configuration Spaces" held at the University of Tokyo, July 5–11, 2005, in honor of the 60th birthday of Fred Cohen. The emphasis of the conference was on cohomology of groups, classical and modern homotopy theory, geometry and topology of configuration spaces and related topics. However, the conference was intended to have a broad scope, with talks on a variety of topics of current interests in topology. The organizing committee consisted of Norio Iwase, Toshitake Kohno, Ran Levi, Dai Tamaki and Jie Wu. The conference was supported by the COE program of the Graduate School of Mathematical Sciences, The University of Tokyo.
