Topology Seminar

Title: Stabilizations of categories and graphs
Speaker: Deborah Vicinsky
Speaker Info: University of Oregon
Brief Description:
Special Note:

I will construct the stabilization of the category of small categories with the canonical model structure, in which the weak equivalences are equivalences of categories and the cofibrations are injective on objects. In this case, the stabilization completely determines the Goodwillie derivatives of the identity functor. I will also discuss the homotopy theory of two categories of graphs.
