The UBC Mathematics Department has a strong group working in algebraic
and geometric topology. Members of this group are known internationally for their contributions to
areas such as homotopy theory, group actions, cohomology of groups, orbifolds, Ktheory,
low dimensional topology, knot theory, geometric group theory, etc. During the term, the
UBC Topology Seminar
meets once or twice a week at PIMS,
and features distinguished speakers from other universities. This seminar is currently organized by
Marc Stephan (see address below).
