This is often the 1st authored ebook to be devoted to the hot box of directed algebraic topology that arose within the Nineteen Nineties, in homotopy concept and within the idea of concurrent strategies. Its normal target might be said as 'modelling non-reversible phenomena' and its area could be unusual from that of classical algebraic topology by means of the primary that directed areas have privileged instructions and directed paths therein needn't be reversible. Its homotopical instruments (corresponding within the classical case to boring homotopies, primary workforce and primary groupoid) may be equally 'non-reversible': directed homotopies, basic monoid and basic classification. Homotopy structures take place the following in a directed model, which provides upward push to new 'shapes', like directed cones and directed spheres. purposes will care for domain names the place privileged instructions seem, together with rewrite structures, site visitors networks and organic platforms. the main built examples are available within the sector of concurrency.
