Title: Waldhausen K-theory as a Goodwillie Derivative
Speaker: Clark Barwick
Speaker Info: MIT
Special Note: note unusual day and time!
The Waldhausen K-theory of higher categories enjoys a universal property, analogous to the universal property of the Grothendieck group. One way of formulating this universal property is to describe it as a Goodwillie derivative of a familiar functor, viewed from a less familiar perspective.Date: Wednesday, May 30, 2012
