Homotopy nilpotent groups and spaces

Georg Biedermann (Universitaet Osnabrueck)

We give a brief introduction into Goodwillie's calculus of homotopy functors. Then we define homotopy nilpotent groups and their classifying spaces. They arise from the relationship of the Goodwillie tower fo the identity an the lower central series of the loop group of a connected space. This is joint with W.G. Dwyer.
