About the Authors
  • The prominent role of multiplicative cohomology theories has led to a great deal of foundational research recently on ring spectra within the field of algebraic topology. This has given rise to significant new approaches to constructing categories of spectra and ring-like objects in them. These essays contain important new contributions to the theory of structured ring spectra as well as survey papers describing relationships between them.

    • Provides overview papers on up to date topics in structured ring spectra
    • Describes recently developed obstruction theories for multiplicative structures on ring spectra
    • First book to collect recent results in the field and to compare the different approaches
