Topology Seminar

Title: Monochromatic unstable homotopy theory
Speaker: Guozhen Wang
Speaker Info: MIT
Brief Description:
Special Note:

The EHP sequence, Goodwillie tower, and the Bousfield-Kuhn functor are powerful tools in understanding unstable homotopy theory. I will show how we can combine these to study the v_2 periodic phenomenon in unstable homotopy groups of spheres. As an example, I will compute the K(2)-localized homotopy groups of the unstable 3-sphere.
