We present an approach to cohomological dimension theory based on infinite symmetric products and on the general theory of dimension called the extension dimension. The notion of the extension dimension ext-dim(X) was introduced by A. N. Dranishnikov [9] in the context of compact spaces and CW complexes. This paper investigates extension types of infinite symmetric products SP(L). One of the main ideas of the paper is to treat ext-dim(X) ≤ SP(L) as the fundamental concept of cohomological dimension...

The purpose of this paper is to put together a large amount of results on the $K(\pi ,1)$ conjecture for Artin groups, and to make them accessible to non-experts. Firstly, this is a survey, containing basic definitions, the main results, examples and an historical overview of the subject. But, it is also a reference text on the topic that contains proofs of a large part of the results on this question. Some proofs as well as few results are new. Furthermore, the text, being addressed to non-experts, is as...

The class of loop spaces of which the mod $p$ cohomology is Noetherian is much larger than the class of $p$-compact groups (for which the mod $p$ cohomology is required to be finite). It contains Eilenberg–Mac Lane spaces such as $\u2102{P}^{\infty}$ and 3-connected covers of compact Lie groups. We study the cohomology of the classifying space $BX$ of such an object and prove it is as small as expected, that is, comparable to that of $B\u2102{P}^{\infty}$. We also show that $B$X differs basically from the classifying space of a $p$-compact group...

The aim of this short survey is to give a quick introduction to the Salvetti complex as a tool for the study of the cohomology of Artin groups. In particular we show how a spectral sequence induced by a filtration on the complex provides a very natural and useful method to study recursively the cohomology of Artin groups, simplifying many computations. In the last section some examples of applications are presented.
