Lectures on 4-manifold theory

Time:Thursday, 13:30-15:05 May 9 &16, 2024

Venue:A513 Shuangqing Complex Building A 清华大学双清综合楼 A513

Speaker:Selman Akbulut Michigan State University


This is a mini lecture on 4-manifold theory. It will cover topics in 4-dimensional topology including: handlebodies of smooth 4-manifolds, constructing exotic 4-manifolds and exotic surfaces, fundamental pieces of 4-manifolds (corks, anticorks and plugs) , slice genus and shake slice genus. Several important conjectures will also be discussed.
