This summer school is aimed at graduate students and post-docs, though all are welcome. We have support from the National Science Foundation for at least forty student/post-doc participants, including local accommodations and partial reimbursement of travel expenses (depending on interest and available funds). The Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences will support travel by Canadian students.
Scientific plan: The scientific goal is to provide a modern introduction to algebraic K-theory, with the aim of bringing participants to the research frontier. In particular, the workshop will focus on
- the current understanding and interpretation of the construction, functoriality, and multiplicative structures on the algebraic K-theory spectrum,
- trace methods for computing via comparison to TC and THH,
- Rognes' program to understand K(S) and localization phenomena, and
- an exploration of the modern applications of the algebraic K-theory of brave new rings to the topology of manifolds.
|Scientfic Committee:||Andrew Blumberg, Bill Dwyer, Teena Gerhardt, John Klein, and Mike Mandell|
|Organizing Committee:||Alejandro Adem, Ralph Cohen, and Dev Sinha|
|Sponsoring organizations:||The National Science Foundation, the University of Oregon, Stanford University, and the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences.|
In the following week also at Stanford will be the Algebraic Topology, Applications and New Directions conference in honor of Gunnar Carlsson, Ralph Cohen and Ib Madsen. WCATSS participants are strongly encouraged to attend that conference as well.
