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, K-theory, 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 Man Chuen Cheng [mccheng (at)].
