Adem A. , Milgram R. J. Cohomology of finite teams (Springer, 1994)(ISBN 354057025X)

An important invariant of a topological area is its basic staff. whilst this is often trivial, the ensuing homotopy thought is definitely researched and universal. within the common case, even if, homotopy thought over nontrivial basic teams is far extra not easy and much much less good understood. Syzygies and Homotopy concept explores the matter of nonsimply attached homotopy within the first nontrivial instances and provides, for the 1st time, a scientific rehabilitation of Hilbert's approach to syzygies within the context of non-simply attached homotopy thought.
