    following discussion here I am starting an entry with a bare list of references (sub-sectioned), to be !include-ed into the References sections of relevant entries (mainly at homotopy theory and at algebraic topology) for ease of updating and syncing these lists.

    The organization of the subsections and their items here needs work, this is just a start. Let’s work on it.

    I’ll just check now that I have all items copied, and then I will !include this entry here into homotopy theory and algebraic topology. It may best be viewed withing these entries, because there – but not here – will there be a table of contents showing the subsections here.

    Just to say that this is not meant to be perfect in any way. I just stitched this together from the material we had in various entries. Let’s work on this entry here and imrprove it for organization and completeness.

    But – I suggest – let’s try to be have a comprehensive list of reference only regarding references that can be regarded as being on homotopy theory and/or algebraic proper, while on the topics of \infty-category theory, homotopy type theory etc. this list here should just contain some basics.

    for the basic algebraic topology ones (there are also other things there, like references on \infty-categories, rational homotopy, etc.). I think maybe it might be helpful for building this page on homotopy theory references. It is currently hosted in a github repo; would you like to be added to there?

    Yes, let’s add all this! Thanks.

    Let’s just try to group the material in some helpful way. So far I have tried to group by “Textbooks” and “Lecture notes” etc, but as we add more it might make sense to further distinguish between “basic” and “advanced” or similar.

    But not to worry about that too much, as it can always be adjusted. If you could add the items from your list that would be great!

  2. Hi Urs,

    Sorry for the delay to reply; I’ve added you to the GitHub repo I mentioned above. There you’ll find the references in #3 in the “Homotopy Theory/Algebraic Topology/” folder.

    I haven’t yet finished organising the basic algebraic topology references there however; I’ll make a note to add them here too once that’s done!

    Hi Théo,

    thanks. But did you mean to give me a link? If you don’t want to be adding to the nLab entry here yourself, maybe the easiest would be if you copy-and-paste whatever you have into the Sandbox here. Then we can see what to do with it.

    Hi Théo,

    oh, now I see that you had sent me an email with an invite to your repository.

    Have now browsed around there a little. I find a list of links that open pdf-s with copies of books. Is that what you are pointing me to?

    Right, that’s a good list. But it seems some work is necessary to turn this into items usable in our entry here.

  3. Hi Urs,

    If you don’t want to be adding to the nLab entry here yourself […]

    I’m happy to add them! It’s just that I want to first finish compiling more references in that folder before starting to add them here.

    Have now browsed around there a little. I find a list of links that open pdf-s with copies of books. Is that what you are pointing me to?

    Yep, it’s mostly a list of references (papers, books, lecture notes, etc.) divided by topic.

    Right, that’s a good list. But it seems some work is necessary to turn this into items usable in our entry here.

    Yes, definitely it needs some work! I wonder if one could partly automatise this by running it through Zotero or something…

    • CommentTimeSep 25th 2021

    Okay, I see.

    I wouldn’t rush for automation here (but I am also not worried that it will be implemented soon…) since there is crucial semantic value in expert humans (us!) adding commentary, cross-links and organization to a list of references

    I suggest: Let’s keep your list of books in mind, but let’s proceed with adding references by hand, whenever we happen to need them, or whenever a particularly classical or otherwise noteworthy textbook or article seems to be missing in a list.

  4. Okay! I’ll start going again over that list (to add missing references there) and then add its entries here :)

    Wait, this doesn’t work well. Notice that the TOC-items which you just added are more than the entire rest of the list.

    But this list is for general texts on homotopy theory/algebraic topology. Individual results and topics must be listed elsewhere.

    What you are after here is instead something like:

    I have removed the new addition here (left a pointer) and instead gave it its own new entry:

    and !include-ed this into the list of references at homotopy type theory (here)
