Topology Seminar

Title: Topological Hochschild Homology and Koszul Duality
Speaker: Jonathan Campbell
Speaker Info: Stanford
Brief Description:
Special Note:

Topological Hochschild Homology (THH) is an invariant of ring spectra related both to K-theory and topological field theories. In this talk I'll state and prove a theorem concerning the relationship between THH and Koszul duality. I'll introduce the necessary definitions, and in particular say what I mean by "Koszul duality". I will also introduce some infinity-categorical background that will be necessary for the proof. Finally, I'll discuss some related results that I believe to be true, and applications of the work above to topological field theories.
