The singular chain complex of the iterated loop space is expressed in terms of the cobar construction. After that we consider the spectral sequence of the cobar construction and calculate its first term over Z/p-coefficients and over a field of characteristic zero. Finally we apply these results to calculate the homology of the iterated loop spaces of the stunted real and complex projective spaces. In the Appendix, written by F.Sergeraert there are considered computer methods for calculations… 

Loop spaces of configuration spaces and finite type invariants

The total homology of the loop space of the configuration space of ordered distinct n points in Rm has a structure of a Hopf algebra defined by the 4-term relations if m ≥ 3. We describe a relation

The homology of iterated loop spaces

In recent years, to solve various problems in Algebraic Topology it has been necessary to consider more and more complicated structures on the singular chain complex C∗(X) of a topological space X

The rational homology of spaces of long knots in codimension > 2

We determine the rational homology of the space of long knots in R for d 4 . Our main result is that the Vassiliev spectral sequence computing this rational homology collapses at the E page. As a

A spectral sequence for the homology of a finite algebraic delooping

In the world of chain complexes E_n-algebras are the analogues of based n-fold loop spaces in the category of topological spaces. Fresse showed that operadic E_n-homology of an E_n-algebra computes

Infinite families of higher torsion in the homotopy groups of Moore spaces

We give a refinement of the stable Snaith splitting of the double loop space of a Moore space and use it to construct infinite v1-periodic families of elements of order p r+1 in the homotopy groups

On the Rational Bredon Cohomology of Equivariant Configuration Spaces

. Bredon cohomology is a cohomology theory that applies to topological spaces equipped with the group actions. For any group G , given a real linear representation V , the configuration space of V has

Homological Stability among Moduli Spaces of Holomorphic Curves in Complex Projective Space

The primary goal of this paper is to find a homotopy theoretic approximation to moduli spaces of holomorphic maps Riemann surfaces into complex projective space. There is a similar treatment of a

Topological nonrealization results via the Goodwillie tower approach to iterated loopspace homology

We prove a strengthened version of a theorem of Lionel Schwartz that says that certain modules over the Steenrod algebra cannot be the mod 2 cohomology of a space. What is most interesting is our

The homology of the little disks operad

In this expository paper we give an elementary, hands-on computation of the homology of the little disks operad, showing that the homology of a $d-fold loop space is a Poisson algebra. One aim is to

Computations in the unstable homology of moduli spaces of Riemann surfaces
