A user’s guide to spectral sequences. 2nd ed. (English) Zbl 0959.55001
Cambridge Studies in Advanced Mathematics. 58. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. xv, 561 p. (2001).
The first edition of this excellent book has been reviewed in Zbl 0577.55001.
The biggest change in the second edition is the addition of two chapters. The new chapter \(8^{\text{bis}}\) treats non simply-connected spaces, more specificly: nilpotent spaces. The Cartan-Leray spectral sequence and Lyndon-Hochschild-Serre spectral sequences are discussed. The new chapter 10 treats Bockstein spectral sequences in more detail. For a survey of the other chapters refer to the review of the first edition.
