# The Combinatorics of Iterated Loop Spaces

@inproceedings{BataninTheCO, title={The Combinatorics of Iterated Loop Spaces}, author={Michael Batanin} }

It is well known since Stasheff's work that 1-fold loop spaces can be described in terms of the existence of higher homotopies for associativity (coherence conditions) or equivalently as algebras of contractible non-symmetric operads. The combinatorics of these higher homotopies is well understood and is extremely useful. For n ≥ 2 the theory of symmetric operads encapsulated the corresponding higher homotopies, yet hid the combinatorics and it has remain a mystery for almost 40 years. However… CONTINUE READING
