Algebraic Topology Student Seminar
The seminar is addressed to master and PhD students willing to learn more (advanced) topics in Algebraic Topology.
This semester we would like to continue the study of homotopy theory within the model category framework and to go through Peter May's book
"The Geometry of Iterated Loop Spaces"
Students are also encouraged to propose topics based on their personal interests.
Time and place
The seminar will take place on Thursday 14:00-16:00 in the Huygensgebouw (the room might change from week to week).
