Markus Szymik: Knot theory without knots

Time: Tue 2019-03-19 13.15 - 15.00

Location: Room 34, House 5, Kräftriket, Department of Mathematics, Stockholm University 

Lecturer: Markus Szymik

Abstract: Knots and their groups are a traditional topic of geometric topology. In this talk, I will explain how aspects of the subject can be approached as a homotopy theorist, rephrasing old results and leading to new ones. Part of this reports on joint work with Tyler Lawson.
