Title: Non-commutative motives
Speaker: Goncalo Tabuada
Speaker Info: Universidade Nova de Lisboa/UIC
Brief Description:
Special Note: Special Day

Abstract: In this talk I will describe the construction of the category of non-commutative motives [1,2,3] in Drinfeld-Kontsevich's non-commutative algebraic geometry program. In the process, I will present the first conceptual characterization of Quillen's higher K-theory since Quillen's foundational work in the 70's. As an application, I will show how these results allow us to obtain for free the higher Chern character from K-theory to cyclic homology.
