Algebraic Topology Program
Month: January 2014
Date: January 20--May 23
Name: Algebraic Topology Program
Location: Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, California.
Algebraic topology touches almost every branch of modern mathematics. Algebra, geometry, topology, analysis, algebraic geometry, and number theory all influence and in turn are influenced by the methods of algebraic topology. The goals of this 2014 program at MSRI are: Bring together algebraic topology researchers from all subdisciplines, reconnecting the pieces of the field, identify the fundamental problems and goals in the field, uncovering the broader themes and connections, connect young researchers with the field, broadening their perspective and introducing them to the myriad approaches and techniques.
