Date and Place: September 30th 10h45, CRM room A1 Speaker: Rosona Eldred (WWU Münster) Title: Brave new deRham Complex
Abstract: In joint work with Bauer, Johnson and McCarthy, we use the recently developed unbased calculus of functors to provide a good model for the deRham complex for commutative ring spectra, conjectured originally by Waldhausen, and show it is equivalent to a cosimplicial model proposed by Rezk. In this talk, I will have time to give a quick introduction to the calculus of functors, say broadly the relationship between the deRham complex and functor calculus, and why the development of the unbased calculus was a necessary step, as well as some future directions. The calculations will be more algebraic than homotopytheoretic, so should be comfortable for a broad audience.
Date and Place: September 30th 12h00, CRM room A1 Speaker: Luis Javier Hernández Paricio (Universidad de La Rioja) Title: Postnikov factorizations for shape and proper homotopy theory
Abstract: (joint work with J. I. Extremiana y M. T. Rivas) In this talk we present Postnikov sections for BrownGrossman homotopy groups and for Steenrod homotopy groups in the category of exterior spaces. The homotopy fibre of one of these decompositions is a ElilembergMac Lane with respect one of this family of homotopy groups and it has two possible nontrivial consecutive homotopy groups with respect the other family. Some applications are given to proper homotopy theory and shape theory.
