    Nothing to be seen here yet, but I need to save. (Am not sold on the entry title, except that “topology” is not really the right term here.)

    I have added the qualifier “regular” to “rational map”, but still need to say this better – the terminology here is confusing.

    I have added more words to the Idea-section and a remark on the regularity of the rational functions.

    I have added a remark (here) that the space of rational maps P 1P n\mathbb{C}P^1 \to \mathbb{C}P^n that is considered in Segal’s theorem is also considered in Gromov-Witten theory (after compactification and quotienting), as is nicely explicit in Bertram 02, p. 9.

    This confluence looks like it ought to have drawn attention, but I don’t find literature in this direction.

    re #8:

    I see that it is this connection which the preprint

    • David Ayala, Homological Stability among Moduli Spaces of Holomorphic Curves in Complex Projective Space (arXiv:0811.2274)

    was after, before the author discovered the mistake highlighted in v2.

    Mistake or not, that’s the right question to ask. But it looks like it wasn’t followed up.

    added (here) brief statement of the main theorem from

    identifying the full homotopy type of the space of pointed rational maps P 1P n\mathbb{C}P^1 \to \mathbb{C}P^n with that of a configuration space of points. (Am making a similar addition now to this latter entry, too.)

    Fixed the statement of Segal’s theorem (here), now pointing to n-equivalence (following Segal’s note on terminology on p. 44)
