Courses

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.

Homotopical algebra

This course will provide an introduction to model category theory, which is an abstract framework for generalizing homotopy theory beyond topological spaces and continuous maps. We will study numerous examples of model categories and their applications in algebra and topology.

Reading group in applied topology I

In this reading group, we will work together through recent important papers in applied topology. Participants will take turns presenting articles, then leading a discussion of the contents.

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
