Topology Seminar: Mauricio Gomez Lopez (U. Oregon)

Title: Cobordism Categories and Spaces of Manifolds. Abstract: Cobordisms have been one of the central objects in topology since the pioneering work of Rene Thom, which provided the first link between manifolds and homotopy theory. In more recent years, there has been much focus on cobordism categories. These play a fundamental role in the study […]
