Pure Maths Colloquium: Symmetry and Topology

Presented by Sir Michael Atiyah (University of Edinburgh),

18 February 2004 16:00 in CM221

"In the presence of symmetry, topological methods can be enhanced. The machinery for doing this is called equivariant cohomology. I will explain this in simple terms and illustrate it with a few examples. I will then apply it to several geometric situations, involving configurations of points, flag manifolds and vector bundles."

Note the unusual day and place. This colloquium takes place at 16:15 in CG 85.
