Abstract

The topological group of homeomorphisms of d-dimensional Euclidean space is a basic object in geometric topology, closely related to understanding the difference between diffeomorphisms and homeomorphisms of all d-dimensional manifolds (except when d=4). I will explain some methods that have been used for studying the algebraic topology of this group, and report on a recently obtained conjectural picture of it.


About Speaker

Oscar Randal - Williams is a Professor of Mathematics at the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics of the University of Cambridge. He is interested in algebraic and geometric topology, in particular the topology of moduli spaces, automorphism groups of manifolds, and applications of homotopy theory to geometry. He has been awarded the Whitehead prize, the Philip Leverhulme prize, the Dannie Heineman prize, the Oberwolfach prize, and most recently the Clay Research Award.

  • Modern Mathematics Lecture Series Representation theory and a little bit of quantum field theory

    Abstract:One of the central foci of representation theory in the 20th century was the representation theory of Lie algebras, starting with finite dimensional algebras and expanding to a rich, but still mysterious infinite dimensional theory. In this century, we realized that this was only one special case of a bigger theory, with new sources of interesting non-commutative algebras whose repres...
