Seminar: Thinking equivariantly

Benjamin Böhme will give a talk on Thinking equivariantly.

Abstract: Let G be a finite group. I will explain how to generalize familiar aspects of category theory, commutative algebra and algebraic topology to equivariant theories which restrict to the usual setup if G is taken to be the trivial group. In particular, the discussion will include different flavours of G-categories, the representation ring R(G), the Burnside ring A(G), and equivariant homotopy and homology.
This talk might be the foundation for a series of talks that focus on a single features of equivariant topology and discuss it in detail.

The lecture is part of the ALG/NCG/TOP Ph.D. students' seminar.
