The Handbook of Homotopy established the state-of-the-art research on this emerging topic in topology. Homotopy is a newer topic, Homotopy theory is an idea that finds its roots in the work of Henri Poincare in the early twentieth century. It was oneof the foundational ideas of topology, which is now a booming field of mathematics. The list of topics and contributors is impressive. The topics cover a broad swath, and the contributors will do an outstanding job. Students particularly will findthis book to be an entree to an active field of study.
