This collection of papers is based on talks at a December 2003 conference. Papers illustrate the versatility of algebraic topology interacting with others areas of mathematics and physics. Topics discussed range from classical differential topology and homotopy theory to more recent lines of research such as topological quantum field theory (string theory). Alternative viewpoints on classical problems such as global analysis and dynamical systems are developed. Material reflects the work of Sam Gitler, a pioneer in homotopy theory. There is no subject index.
