Lusternik-Schnirelmann category and algebraic $R$-local homotopy theory In this paper, we define the notion of $R_{\ast}$-$\LS$ category
associated to an increasing system of subrings of $\Q$ and we relate
it to the usual $\LS$-category. We also relate it to the invariant
introduced by F\'elix and Lemaire in tame homotopy theory, in which
case we give a description in terms of Lie algebras and of cocommutative
coalgebras, extending results of Lemaire-Sigrist and F\'elix-Halperin.

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.

Stable parallelizability of partially oriented flag manifolds II In the first paper with the same title the authors
were able to determine all partially oriented flag
manifolds that are stably parallelizable or
parallelizable, apart from four infinite families
that were undecided. Here, using more delicate
techniques (mainly K-theory), we settle these
previously undecided families and show that none of
the manifolds in them is stably parallelizable,
apart from one 30-dimensional manifold which still
remains undecided.

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.
