The Ranks of the Homotopy Groups of a Finite Dimensional Complex
Let $X$ be an $n$-dimensional, finite, simply connected CW complex and set $\alpha_X =\limsup_i \frac{\log\mbox{ rank}\, \pi_i(X)}{i}$. When $0\lt \alpha_X\lt \infty$, we give upper and lower bound for $ \sum_{i=k+2}^{k+n} \textrm{rank}\, \pi_i(X) $ for $k$ sufficiently large. We show also for any $r$ that $\alpha_X$ can be estimated from the integers rk$\,\pi_i(X)$, $i\leq nr$ with an error bound depending explicitly on $r$.

Jardine, J. F.
Pointed Torsors
This paper gives a characterization of homotopy fibres of inverse image maps on groupoids of torsors that are induced by geometric morphisms, in terms of both pointed torsors and pointed cocycles, suitably defined. Cocycle techniques are used to give a complete description of such fibres, when the underlying geometric morphism is the canonical stalk on the classifying topos of a profinite group $G$. If the torsors in question are defined with respect to a constant group $H$, then the path components of the fibre can be identified with the set of continuous maps from the profinite group $G$ to the group $H$. More generally, when $H$ is not constant, this set of path components is the set of continuous maps from a pro-object in sheaves of groupoids to $H$, which pro-object can be viewed as a ``Grothendieck fundamental groupoid".

Misamore, Michael D.
Nonabelian $H^1$ and the Étale Van Kampen Theorem
Generalized étale homotopy pro-groups $\pi_1^{\operatorname{ét}}(ċ{C}, x)$ associated with pointed, connected, small Grothendieck sites $(\mathcal{C}, x)$ are defined, and their relationship to Galois theory and the theory of pointed torsors for discrete groups is explained.
Applications include new rigorous proofs of some folklore results around $\pi_1^{\operatorname{ét}}(ét(X), x)$, a description of Grothendieck's short exact sequence for Galois descent in terms of pointed torsor trivializations, and a new étale van Kampen theorem that gives a simple statement about a pushout square of pro-groups that works for covering families that do not necessarily consist exclusively of monomorphisms. A corresponding van Kampen result for Grothendieck's profinite groups $\pi_1^{\mathrm{Gal}}$ immediately follows.

Pronk, Dorette; Scull, Laura
Translation Groupoids and Orbifold Cohomology
We show that the bicategory of (representable) orbifolds and good maps is equivalent to the bicategory of orbifold translation groupoids and generalized equivariant maps, giving a mechanism for transferring results from equivariant homotopy theory to the orbifold category. As an application, we use this result to define orbifold versions of a couple of equivariant cohomology theories: K-theory and Bredon cohomology for certain coefficient diagrams.

Keywords:orbifolds, equivariant homotopy theory, translation groupoids, bicategories of fractions

Selick, P.; Theriault, S.; Wu, J.
Functorial Decompositions of Looped Coassociative Co-$H$ Spaces
Selick and Wu gave a functorial decomposition of $\Omega\Sigma X$ for path-connected, $p$-local \linebreak$\CW$\nbd-com\-plexes $X$ which obtained the smallest nontrivial functorial retract $A^{\min}(X)$ of $\Omega\Sigma X$. This paper uses methods developed by the second author in order to extend such functorial decompositions to the loops on coassociative co-$H$ spaces.

Keywords:homotopy decomposition, coassociative co-$H$ spaces

Scull, Laura
Equivariant Formality for Actions of Torus Groups
This paper contains a comparison of several definitions of equivariant formality for actions of torus groups. We develop and prove some relations between the definitions. Focusing on the case of the circle group, we use $S^1$-equivariant minimal models to give a number of examples of $S^1$-spaces illustrating the properties of the various definitions.

Keywords:Equivariant homotopy, circle action, minimal model,, rationalization, formality

Giraldo, Antonio
Shape fibrations, multivalued maps and shape groups
The notion of shape fibration with the near lifting of near multivalued paths property is studied. The relation of these maps---which agree with shape fibrations having totally disconnected fibers---with Hurewicz fibrations with the unique path lifting property is completely settled. Some results concerning homotopy and shape groups are presented for shape fibrations with the near lifting of near multivalued paths property. It is shown that for this class of shape fibrations the existence of liftings of a fine multivalued map, is equivalent to an algebraic problem relative to the homotopy, shape or strong shape groups associated.

Smith, Samuel Bruce
Rational Classification of simple function space components for flag manifolds.
Let $M(X,Y)$ denote the space of all continous functions between $X$ and $Y$ and $M_f(X,Y)$ the path component corresponding to a given map $f: X\rightarrow Y.$ When $X$ and $Y$ are classical flag manifolds, we prove the components of $M(X,Y)$ corresponding to ``simple'' maps $f$ are classified up to rational homotopy type by the dimension of the kernel of $f$ in degree two cohomology. In fact, these components are themselves all products of flag manifolds and odd spheres.

Keywords:Rational homotopy theory, Sullivan-Haefliger model.
