Princeton/IAS Symplectic Geometry Seminar | |

Topic: | Stable homotopy theory and Floer theory |

Speaker: | Thomas Kragh |

Affiliation: | Uppsala University |

Date: | Monday, March 21 |

Time/Room: | 3:10pm - 4:10pm/S-101 |

In this talk I will define and explain some basic notions from stable homotopy theory, and illustrate how it relates to (and refines) the notion of Floer homology in some simple cases. I will also discuss what extra kind of information this refinement contains and describe an explicit situation where it provides a stronger result than the usual homological invariants (joint work with Mohammed Abouzaid).
