The homology of the special linear group and quadratic forms
Speaker: Dr. Kevin Hutchinson (UCD)
Date: Wed 1st October 2008
Location: Mathematical Sciences Seminar Room
We will give an account of how recent developments in quadratic form theory help to answer some old questions about the homology of special linear groups. No prior knowledge of group homology will be assumed (this is joint work with L.Tao).
(This talk is part of the K-Theory, Quadratic Forms and Number Theory series.)
