Geometry and Topology Seminar: Homotopical ideas in the theory of knots

Presented by Markus Szymik, Norwegian University of Science and Technology

14 December 2017 13:00 in CM221

Knots and their groups are a traditional topic of geometric topology. In this talk I will explain how the subject can be approached by an algebraic topologist, using ideas from Quillen's homotopical algebra, rephrasing old results and leading to new ones.
