In offering this therapy of homological algebra, it's a excitement to recognize the assistance and encouragement which i've got had from each side. Homological algebra arose from many assets in algebra and topology. Decisive examples got here from the examine of staff extensions and their issue units, a subject matter I discovered in joint paintings with OTTO SCHIL LING. an extra improvement of homological principles, to be able to their topological purposes, got here in my lengthy collaboration with SAMUEL ElLENBERG; to either collaborators, especial thank you. for a few years the Air strength place of work of clinical examine supported my examine initiatives on a variety of topics now summarized the following; it's a excitement to recognize their energetic figuring out of easy technological know-how. either REINHOLD BAER and JOSEF SCHMID learn and commented on my complete manuscript; their suggestion has ended in many advancements. ANDERS KOCK and JACQUES RIGUET have learn the whole galley facts and stuck many slips and obscurities. one of the others whose sug gestions have served me good, I be aware FRANK ADAMS, LOUIS AUSLANDER, WILFRED COCKCROFT, ALBRECHT DOLD, GEOFFREY HORROCKS, FRIED wealthy KASCH, JOHANN LEICHT, ARUNAS LIULEVICIUS, JOHN MOORE, DIE TER PUPPE, JOSEPH YAO, and a few my present scholars on the college of Chicago - to not m~ntion the auditors of my lectures at Chicago, Heidelberg, Bonn, Frankfurt, and Aarhus.
