Friday's Topology Seminar 2017-2018

Speaker: Marithania Silvero (BGSMath-UB)
Title: Strongly quasipositive links and Conway polynomial
Place: Seminari C3b/158
Date:
20th July at 10:45

Abstract: Strongly quasipositive links are those links which can be seen as closures of positive braids in terms of band generators. We give a necessary condition for a link with braid index 3 to be strongly quasipositive, by proving that they have positive Conway polynomial (that is, all its coefficients are non-negative). We also show that this result cannot be extended to a higher number of strands, as we provide a strongly quasipositive braid on 5 strands whose closure has non-positive Conway polynomial.

Title: Stability for Kac-Moody Groups
Place: C3b/158
Date:
20th July at 12:00

Abstract: In the class of Kac-Moody groups, one can extend all the exceptional families of compact Lie groups yielding infinite families, as well as other infinite families. We will show that these exceptional families stabilize in a homotopical sense and that the (co)homology of their classifying spaces is torsion free for all but a finite set of primes that is determined by the family (and not the individual groups in the family).

Friday's Topology Seminar 2016-2017

Speaker: Ramón Flores (Universidad de Sevilla)
Title: Espacios clasificadores de grupos de trenzas.
Place: Seminari C1/366
Date:
28th July at 10:00.
Abstract:
En esta charla mostraremos cómo se puede calcular la dimensión del espacio clasificador de los grupos de trenzas respecto de la familia de grupos virtualmente cíclicos. Las herramientas utilizadas incluyen el modelo de Lück-Weiermann de estos espacios, la clasificación de trenzas de Nielsen-Thurston, y resultados homológicos sobre los conmensuradores de los subgrupos cíclicos.

Ramsés Fernandez Valencià (Swansea University)
Title:
Sobre teorías topologicas conformes de campos no orientadas.
Abstract:
En la charla se aboradará el concepto de TCFT no orientada (KTCFT). Concretamente, se dará una nueva demostración para la clasificación de KTCFTs abiertas, se introducirá la extensión universal de KTCFTs abiertas a teorías abierto-cerradas y se aboradará la relación de la parte cerrada de una KTCFT abierto-cerrada con el complejo de Hochschild involutivo.

Date and place: June 19,  2015. 12:00. CRM Aula A1.
Speaker : Leandro Lombardi (Universidad de Buenos Aires, Argentina)

Title:
Álgebras de cactus compatiblemente bigraduadas
Abstract:
Se mostrará una correspondencia entre la estructura de álgebra sobre el operad (de cadenas celulares del operad topológico) de cactus y el álgebra asociativa libre subyacente, en presencia de una bigraduación compatible.
En toda álgebra de cactus puede considerarse un producto pre-Lie.
En el caso de que este álgebra sea de la forma T V para V un espacio vectorial, este producto, restringido a V, resulta asociativo. Se muestra que una estructura de álgebra de cactus en TV induce una estructura de biálgebra asociativa y coasociativa en  H = V + 1 donde 1 es la unidad formal de dicho producto.  Esto muestra, junto con trabajos previos de Kadeishvili y Menichi que estas estructuras están en correspondencia biunívoca con las estructuras álgebra de cactus en TV (que extienden la de álgebra asociativa) con cierta condición de compatibilidad con la graduación, propiedad motivada por el ejemplo del complejo de Hochschild.

Speaker : Shizuo Kaji (Yamaguchi U)
Title:
A product in equivariant homology for compact Lie group actions
Abstract:
The Tate cohomology for a finite group integrates group homology and cohomology into one theory. It is equipped with a cup product, which coincides with the usual one on cohomology and gives a ring structure on homology. A few attempts have been made to generalise this product structure on homology. We follow the line of Kreck and Tene. Kreck defined a product on H_*(BG;Z) for a compact Lie group G based on his geometric homology theory and Tene showed it coincides with the cup product on the Tate cohomology when G is finite. We will generalise this product to one on the equivariant homology of a manifold with a nice action of a Lie group. Our construction is simple and purely homotopy theoretical. This is a joint work with Haggai Tene.

Date and place: June 20, 2014. 12am. CRM, small lecture room.
