### Abstract

... L are simplicial sets, then there is a strong deformation retraction of the fundamental crossed complex of the cartesian product K \Theta L onto the tensor product of the fundamental crossed complexes of K and L. This satisfies various side-conditions and associativity/interchange laws, as for the chain complex version. Given simplicial sets K 0 ; : : : ; K r , we discuss the r-cube of homotopies induced on (K 0 \Theta : : : \Theta K r ) and show these form a coherent system. We introduce a definition of a double crossed complex, and of the associated total (or codiagonal) crossed complex. We introduce a definition of homotopy colimits of diagrams of crossed complexes. We show that the homotopy colimit of crossed complexes can be expressed as the
