A Tour of the Homotopy Category

To a large extent Homotopy Theory is the study and application of the Homotopy Category. In this talk, we will define the Homotopy Category, survey the basic ideas and techniques that are used to understand it, and describe some of the many applications that come from this understanding.

Refreshments will be served at 2:45 p.m. in the Faculty Lounge, Math Annex (Room 1115).
