Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Teleman Lecture on Higher Algebras and Topological Chiral Homology

Posted by Urs Schreiber

This summer, Constantin Teleman is giving a small lecture series as GQT visiting professor in Utrecht. I may have missed some organizational information when I was travelling last week, but since I am receiving emails from across the world asking me about this lecture, I thought it might be of interest to announce whatever I am aware of here, and hopefully later provide some usable lecture notes.

Here is what I am aware of: the lectures will take place

  • Fridays, 11:00-12:45 in Room BBL005

    starting June 10, and then probably June 17 and maybe June 24.

The lecture topics are:

  1. curved dg-algebras,

  2. the E n operad and E n algebras (in char 0)

  3. statement of Lurie’s cobordism hypothesis

  4. topological chiral homology

See below the fold for references.

Here is a list of papers which might be useful to glance at. They are all more difficult than my lectures, so I am not suggesting that they are prerequisites. But some preliminary knowledge of the following topics will help me sail through some portions of the talks, especially the motivational part. I do plan to explain the background precisely as needed
