Fibrewise Homotopy Theory

Overview

Topology occupies a central position in modern mathematics, and the concept of the fibre bundle provides an appropriate framework for studying differential geometry. Fibrewise homotopy theory is a very large subject that has attracted a good deal of research in recent years. This book provides an overview of the subject as it stands at present.
