Topic: Lie algebras and homotopy theory

Speaker: Jacob Lurie

Affiliation: Professor, School of Mathematics

Date & Time: Monday November 11th, 2019, 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Location: Simonyi Hall 101


In this talk, I'll discuss the role that Lie algebras play in algebraic topology and motivate the development of a "homotopy coherent" version of the theory. I'll also explain an "equation-free" formulation of the classical theory of Lie algebras, which emerges as a concrete byproduct.
