Announcement

We will hold a 2023 summer school on Scissors Congruence, Algebraic K-theory, and Trace Methods for graduate students and early career researchers on June 26-30 at Indiana University, Bloomington.

The summer school will include mini-courses on:

  • Algebraic K-theory - Mona Merling
  • Scissors congruence K-theory - Inna Zakharevich
  • Trace methods - Teena Gerhardt and Cary Malkiewich

The summer school will also feature problem sessions and student talks on foundational papers in the area.

We expect to provide housing for invited participants as well as partial reimbursement for travel expenses. We expect approximately 40-50 participants overall.

Apply (Deadline January 31, 2023)

Program

Background

Participants will get the most out of the summer school if they have background in the following areas:

Familiarity with the basic background of algebraic topology. See, for example:

  • Alan Hatcher. Algebraic Topology. (Cambridge University Press, 2001. (ISBN 0-521-79540-0.) PDF
  • J. P. May. A Concise Course in Algebraic Topology. (University of Chicago Press, 1999.) (ISBN: 0-2265-1183-9.) PDF

Some exposure to simplicial sets or simplicial methods. See, for example:

  • Emily Riehl. A leisurely introduction to simplicial sets. PDF
  • Greg Friedman. An elementary illustrated introduction to simplicial sets. PDF

Some exposure to spectra and the stable category. See, for example:

  • Cary Malkiewich. The stable homotopy category. PDF
  • Chapters 1-4 of David Barnes, Constanze Roitzheim. Foundations of Stable Homotopy Theory. (Cambridge University Press, 2021.) (ISBN 1-108-48278-3.)

Financial Support

We expect to provide housing for invited participants as well as partial reimbursement for travel expenses.
