Courses

Linear Algebra

The purpose of the course is to introduce the basic notions of linear algebra and its applications.

Group Theory

The aim of this course is to study in more detail the basic notions of algebra, in particular the notion of a group.

Algebraic K-theory

Algebraic K-theory, which to any ring R associates a sequence of groups, can be viewed as a theory of linear algebra over an arbitrary ring. We will study in detail the first two of these groups and applications of algebraic K-theory to number theory, alg...

Working group in Topology I

The theme of the working group varies from year to year. Examples of recent topics studied include: Galois theory of ring spectra, duality in algebra and topology, and topological algebraic geometry.

Working group in Topology II

The theme of the working group varies from year to year. Examples of recent topics studied include: Galois theory of ring spectra, duality in algebra and topology, topological algebraic geometry and twisted K-theory
