Those are lawsuits of a global convention on Algebraic Topology, held 28 July via 1 August, 1986, at Arcata, California. The convention served partially to mark the twenty fifth anniversary of the magazine *Topology* and sixtieth birthday of Edgar H. Brown. It preceded ICM 86 in Berkeley, and was once conceived as a successor to the Aarhus meetings of 1978 and 1982. a few thirty papers are incorporated during this quantity, regularly at a study point. topics comprise cyclic homology, H-spaces, transformation teams, genuine and rational homotopy conception, acyclic manifolds, the homotopy concept of classifying areas, instantons and loop areas, and complicated bordism.

Segment# A curve c from a to b for which A(() = u b is called an “oriented segment” from a to b, and is denoted by %(a,b), or by T + ( a ,b). 19) an arc. Also, s-’(a, b) is a segment 46, a ) from b to a. The point set which carrics the segment s(a, b) will be denoted by T(a,b). 21) it determines the segment up to orientation, and it is called the “non-oriented” segment when the distinction is emphasized. 2) A n y subarc of a segmeirt is a segment. For let y(u) be the standard representation of s(a, b), and y , 8 be a n y numbers such that 0 y < 6 a b, then < ab < @ + Y ( Y ) Y ( Y )Y ( 4 < + Y ( 4 r(a b) < + 2; (34 +mr) = = b.

Thus y = z, and uniqueness of prolongation in R‘ guarantees z,’ = z,‘ and (zl, 2,’) = (z,, z,’). The cases x y = yz, = 0, x’y’ = y’z,’ = 0, and x’y’ = y’z,’ = 0 are treated in the same way. + 2) If none of these four cases enter, then x y : yz, = x’y’ : y’z,‘ and x y : yz, = x’y’ : y’zz) show together that none of the eight numbers vanish. Therefore yz, > yz, would imply y’zl‘ > y’z,’ which contradicts ( y , y’) (z,, 2,’) = ( y , y’) (z,, z ~ ‘ ) . Since p(p, p’) = 00, if p(P) = 00 and p(P’) = co, LR x R], is straight with R and R’.

At least one T,, say T,, must contain a (non-empty andl non-countable subset of points in N . Now choose 7,‘. tl’,. . so that the intervals I t - t,‘/ p ( ~ ‘ ( t , ’ ) cover ) the t-axis. Then one of the segments T,‘ thus given, < < < . 10 GEOMETRY OF GEODESICS say T,,’, contains a non-countable subset of T, n N. 7) T,n T,,’ is a segment T. Let it be represented by y ( r ) , 0 t y , y > 0. Then since ~ ( t ) and ~’(t)represent T , and T,,’ in It - tll p ( x (tl)), It - t,,’1 p(x’(t,,’)) respectively, we can find numbers q, q‘ = f 1 and numbers P, P’ such that 4 7 t 8) = Y(t)P x ’ ( $ t 4-p’) = y(t) for 0 t y.
