coface needs a definition —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:14, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

I've linked it. ᛭ LokiClock (talk) 13:51, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

Just wanted to point out that any contractible complex is simple homotopy equivalent to a point, and have edited the article to reflect this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:12, 18 January 2013 (UTC)

Intuitive description?[edit]

Is there any intuitive description or example of the concept of collapse that, at least in my opinion, would make the concept more accessible to non-mathematicians (like me) and thus would maybe enrich the article? -- (talk) 09:38, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

Homotopy type[edit]

How are collapses related to homotopy? For example if we consider delta complexes. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:50, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
