Recent developments in Quantum Topology -- Cancelled --

Posted in

We will review the basics of quantum topology such as the colored Jones polynomial of a knot, its standard conjectures relating to asymptotics, arithmeticity and modularity, as well as the recent quantum hyperbolic invariants of Kashaev et al, their state-integrals and their structural properties. The course is aimed to be accessible by graduate students and young researchers.

Complex-oriented cohomology theories and formal groups

After reviewing some basics about spectra, I will show how certain cohomology theories give rise to 1-dimensional formal group laws. This is the foundational idea of the mathematical field called chromatic homotopy theory. I will provide ordinary cohomology, K-theory and bordism as examples.

Characters of local systems

Posted in
Speaker: 
Bastiaan Cnossen
Affiliation: 
MPIM / University of Bonn
Date: 
Wed, 14/12/2022 - 10:30 - 12:00
Location: 
MPIM Lecture Hall

This is a follow-up of my talk on traces and categorification. I will explain in more detail how one defines characters of local systems on topological spaces, spell out the induced character formula in this setting, and describe how one may deduce a formula for the Becker-Gottlieb transfer of a fibration of spaces.
