Infinite Commutativity (Part II)

In Infinite Commutativity: Part I, I described infinite commutativity in general terms with some basic examples, including real infinite series. In this post, I’ll discuss how the homotopy groups , are more than just abelian in the ordinary sense. Their … Continue reading
