Title: What is the Nerve of a Group?
Speaker: Jesse Wolfson
Speaker Info: 3rd Year Graduate Student
You may have heard of nerves of categories, or groups, or open covers. In this talk, I'll define what the nerve of a group is, show how it encodes all the mathematical information in a group, and show how nerves of groups give a convenient language to describe things like bundles and group actions.Date: Tuesday, November 1, 2011
