Summer School — Homotopical Methods in Fixed Point Theory
27 Jul 2020 - 31 Jul 2020 • Evanston, IL, United States
Northwestern University, Evanston, IL

The workshop will be centered around mini-courses, both on classical fixed-point theory and on modern techniques such as duality theory, spectra, and trace methods in algebraic K-theory.
The intended audience for this summer school should be familiar with the material in Hatcher (except the appendices). This reflects our goal that the school be accessible to second and third year students with an interest in algebraic topology from any PhD granting institution. The school will be structured around a few mini-courses, which will run in an active-learning style.
Stacks Project Workshop 2020

Free Resolutions and Representation Theory
03 Aug 2020 - 07 Aug 2020 • Providence, RI, United States
The structure of free resolutions plays an important role in analyzing singularities of varieties of low codimension. Codimension two Cohen-Macaulay varieties (resp. codimension three Gorenstein varieties) come from rank conditions on an n x (n+1) matrix (resp. a skew-symmetric (2n+1) x (2n+1) matrix). This workshop seeks to push such results to Cohen-Macaulay varieties of codimension three and Gorenstein varieties of codimension four.
