 This volume offers the proceedings from the workshop held at the Gargnano Institute of the University of Milan (Italy) on groups of homotopy selfequivalences and related topics. The book comprises articles of current research on the group of homotopy selfequivalences, the homotopy of function spaces, rational homotopy theory, the classification of homotopy types, and equivariant homotopy theory. Mathematicians from many areas of the globe attended the workshops to discuss their research and to share ideas. Included are two speciallywritten articles, by J. W. Rutter, reviewing the work done in the area of homotopy selfequivalences since 1988. Included also is a bibliography of some 122 articles published since 1988 and a list of problems. This book is suitable for both advanced graduate students and researchers. Readership Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in algebraic topology. Table of Contents  J. W.
