Title:   Mapping spaces in homotopy theory
 
 
 
             Abstract
 
   Mapping spaces are combinatorial devices (simplicial sets) which model
the function space of topological spaces (with the compact-open
topology).  They play an important role in modern abstract homotopy
theory.   In this talk we shall explain their use in defining a "homotopy
theory" (also known as a quasi-category), discuss their relation
to model catgeories, and describe some of their basic properties, as
time permits.
