The June 1993 conference was organized to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Czech mathematician Edward Cech. The main topics of the conference were the most recent results in the stable and unstable homotopy theory. Among the topics in 22 refereed papers: on finiteness of subgroups of self-homotopy equivalences; the Chen groups of the pure braid group; Morava's change of rings theorem; the Boardman homomorphism; and a comparison criterion for certain loop spaces. No index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
