Topology Seminar

Title: Determinantal K-theory and an application
Speaker: Eric Peterson
Speaker Info: University of California Berkeley
Brief Description:
Special Note:

Chromatic homotopy theory is an attempt to divide and conquer algebraic topology by studying a sequence of what were first assumed to be “easier” categories. These categories turn out to be very strangely behaved — and furthermore appear to be equipped with intriguing and exciting connections to number theory. To give an appreciation for the subject, I’ll describe the most basic of these strange behaviors, then I’ll describe an ongoing project which addresses a small part of the “chromatic splitting conjecture”.
