Seminar December 7 2010

Speaker: Fred Cohen

Title: Spaces of particles, their applications and connections.

Abstract: This talk is an exposition of topological, and geometric properties of the classical configuration space of distinct particles in a manifold.

The main setting is how features of these spaces ‘connect’ to several phenomena such as linking of circles in three dimensions, knots in three dimensions as well as homotopy groups of spheres. Explanations will be given for how and why these structures fit together.
