Jason McCarty, of the Mathematics Department, along with coauthor Nicholas Kuhn (University of Virginia), has published the article "The mod 2 Homology of Infinite Loopspaces" in Algebraic and Geometric Topology, March 24, 2013.

Homology groups are an important algebraic invariant of topological spaces, while infinite loopspaces are an important type of topological space.

McCarty and his coauthor address the question of how one can compute the homology groups of infinite loopspaces from information about their "stable" homology groups, by integrating many topological and algebraic ideas.
