simply connected space

A **simply connected topological space** is a 1-connected topological space $X$: a connected space whose fundamental group is the trivial group:

$\pi_1(X) = \{e\}$.

Equivalently: if it is a simply connected object? of the (∞,1)-topos Top.

See n-connected object of an (infinity,1)-topos for more.
