Graduate Student Seminar

Title: An introduction to surface bundles
Speaker: Nick Salter
Speaker Info: University of Chicago
Brief Description:
Special Note:

The study of surface bundles spans topology and geometry in dimensions one, two, three, and four, as well as being deeply connected to the theory of the mapping class group, dynamics, algebraic geometry and even number theory. In this talk I will discuss a few of the fundamental examples of surface bundles, and sketch some aspects of the theory of characteristic classes of surface bundles.
