I know of the "result" that if two pointed spaces are homeomorphic, then the group homomorphism induced by such an homeomorphism if actually an isomorphism between the fundamental groups of these pointed spaces.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

But is there a link between the fundamental groups of homotopy equivalent spaces?
