The homology of the special linear group and quadratic forms

Speaker: Dr. Kevin Hutchinson (UCD)

Time: 3:00PM

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.)
