A stable model category is a setting for homotopy theory where the suspension functor is invertible. The prototypical examples are the category of spectra in the sense of stable homotopy theory and the category of unbounded chain complexes of modules over a ring. In this paper we develop methods for deciding when two stable model categories represent ‘the same homotopy theory’. We show that stable model categories with a single compact generator are equivalent to modules over a ring spectrum. More generally stable model categories with a set of generators are characterized as modules over a ‘ring spectrum with several objects’, i.e., as spectrum valued diagram categories. We also prove a Morita theorem which shows how equivalences between module categories over ring spectra can be realized by smashing with a pair of bimodules. Finally, we characterize stable model categories which represent the derived category of a ring. This is a slight generalization of Rickard’s work on derived equivalent rings. We also include a proof of the model category equivalence of modules over the EilenbergMac Lane spectrum HR and (unbounded) chain complexes of Rmodules for a ring R.
Higher dimensional algebra III: ncategories and the algebra of opetopes
, 1997
"... We give a definition of weak ncategories based on the theory of operads. We work with operads having an arbitrary set S of types, or ‘Soperads’, and given such an operad O, we denote its set of operations by elt(O). Then for any Soperad O there is an elt(O)operad O + whose algebras are Soperads ..."

We give a definition of weak ncategories based on the theory of operads. We work with operads having an arbitrary set S of types, or ‘Soperads’, and given such an operad O, we denote its set of operations by elt(O). Then for any Soperad O there is an elt(O)operad O + whose algebras are Soperads over O. Letting I be the initial operad with a oneelement set of types, and defining I 0+ = I, I (i+1)+ = (I i+) +, we call the operations of I (n−1)+ the ‘ndimensional opetopes’. Opetopes form a category, and presheaves on this category are called ‘opetopic sets’. A weak ncategory is defined as an opetopic set with certain properties, in a manner reminiscent of Street’s simplicial approach to weak ωcategories. In a similar manner, starting from an arbitrary operad O instead of I, we define ‘ncoherent Oalgebras’, which are n times categorified analogs of algebras of O. Examples include ‘monoidal ncategories’, ‘stable ncategories’, ‘virtual nfunctors ’ and ‘representable nprestacks’. We also describe how ncoherent Oalgebra objects may be defined in any (n + 1)coherent Oalgebra.

A classical Einfinity operad is formed by the bar construction of the symmetric groups. Such an operad has been introduced by M. Barratt and P. Eccles in the context of simplicial sets in order to have an analogue of the Milnor FKconstruction for infinite loop spaces. The purpose of this article is to prove that the associative algebra structure on the normalized cochain complex of a simplicial set extends to the structure of an algebra over the BarrattEccles operad. We also prove that differential graded algebras over the BarrattEccles operad form a closed model category. Similar results hold for the normalized Hochschild cochain complex of an associative algebra. More precisely, the Hochschild cochain complex is acted on by a suboperad of the BarrattEccles operad which is equivalent to the classical little squares operad.

The strict globular omegacategories formalize the execution paths of a parallel automaton and the homotopies between them. One associates to such (and any) omegacategory C three homology theories. The first one is called the globular homology. It contains the oriented loops of C. The two other ones are called the negative (resp. positive) corner homology. They contain in a certain manner the branching areas of execution paths or negative corners (resp. the merging areas of execution paths or positive corners) of C. Two natural linear maps called the negative (resp. the positive) Hurewicz morphism from the globular homology to the negative (resp. positive) corner homology are constructed. We explain the reason why these constructions allow the reinterpretation of some geometric problems coming from computer science.

: We give a unified approach to the Isomorphism Conjecture of Farrell and Jones on the algebraic K and Ltheory of integral group rings and to the BaumConnes Conjecture on the topological Ktheory of reduced group C algebras. The approach is through spectra over the orbit category of a discrete group G. We give several points of view on the assembly map for a family of subgroups and describe such assembly maps by a universal property generalizing the results of Weiss and Williams to the equivariant setting. The main tools are spaces and spectra over a category and the study of the associated generalized homology and cohomology theories and homotopy limits. Key words: Algebraic K and Ltheory, BaumConnes Conjecture, assembly maps, spaces and spectra over a category AMSclassification number: 57 Glen Bredon [5] introduced the orbit category Or(G) of a group G. Objects are homogeneous spaces G=H, considered as left Gsets, and morphisms are Gmaps. This is a useful construct for o...

Let X be a topological space and G an abelian group. There are many different definitions for the cohomology group H n (X; G); we will single out three of them for discussion here. First of all, we have the singular cohomology groups H n sing (X; G), which are defined to be cohomology of a chain complex of Gvalued singular cochains on X. An alternative is to regard H n (•, G) as a representable functor on the homotopy category
THE SPECTRAL SEQUENCE RELATING ALGEBRAIC KTHEORY TO MOTIVIC COHOMOLOGY
"... The purpose of this paper is to establish in Theorem 13.13 a spectral sequence from the motivic cohomology of a smooth variety X over a field F to the algebraic Ktheory of X: E p,q 2 = Hp−q (X, Z(−q)) = CH −q (X, −p − q) ⇒ K−p−q(X).

The purpose of this paper is to establish in Theorem 13.13 a spectral sequence from the motivic cohomology of a smooth variety X over a field F to the algebraic Ktheory of X: E p,q 2 = Hp−q (X, Z(−q)) = CH −q (X, −p − q) ⇒ K−p−q(X). (13.13.1) Such a spectral sequence was conjectured by A. Beilinson [Be] as a natural analogue of the AtiyahHirzebruch spectral sequence from the singular cohomology to the topological Ktheory of a topological space. The expectation of such a spectral sequence has provided much of the impetus for the development of motivic cohomology (e.g., [B1], [V2]) and should facilitate many computations in algebraic Ktheory. In the special case in which X equals SpecF, this spectral sequence was established by S. Bloch and S. Lichtenbaum [BL]. Our construction depends crucially upon the main result of [BL], the existence of an exact couple relating the motivic cohomology of the field F to the multirelative Ktheory of coherent sheaves on standard simplices over F (recalled as Theorem 5.5 below). A major step in generalizing the work of Bloch and Lichtenbaum is our reinterpretation of their spectral sequence in terms of the “topological filtration ” on the Ktheory of the standard cosimplicial scheme ∆ • over F. We find that the spectral sequence arises from a tower of Ωprespectra K( ∆ • ) = K 0 ( ∆ • ) ← − K 1 ( ∆ • ) ← − K 2 ( ∆ • ) ← − · · · Thus, even in the special case in which X equals SpecF, we obtain a much clearer understanding of the BlochLichtenbaum spectral sequence which is essential for purposes of generalization. Following this reinterpretation, we proceed using techniques introduced by V. Voevodsky in his study of motivic cohomology. In order to do this, we provide an equivalent formulation of Ktheory spectra associated to coherent sheaves on X with conditions on their supports K q ( ∆ • × X) which is functorial in X. We then Partially supported by the N.S.F. and the N.S.A.
