Topology Seminar

Title: v1-periodic homotopy groups of SU(n)
Speaker: Don Davis
Speaker Info: Lehigh University
Brief Description:
Special Note: Unusual day

I will survey the various results that have been obtained during the past 22 years on the v1-periodic homotopy groups of SU(n). The most recent work has been combinatorial fine tuning to make the statements more explicit. I will discuss conceptual differences between 2-primary and odd-primary groups and implications for actual homotopy groups.
