27 January – Bruno Vallette: Why higher structures?

Over the past 50 years, higher algebraic structures have gradually been appearing in algebra, geometry, topology, and mathematical physics. hile classical structures, like associative, commutative or Lie algebras, are often defined by one operation, these new higher structures, like homotopy algebras or higher categories, are

4 November – Peter Scholze: Condensed Mathematics

In joint work with Dustin Clausen, the talk will introduce a potential replacement for topological spaces, called condensed sets, which resolves many of these foundational issues. Scholze will try to explain what condensed sets are, and how they improve on topological spaces. Peter Scholze is
