Homotopical methods in manifold theory

University of Copenhagen
April 15-19, 2024 

This masterclass aims to survey recent advances in the study of manifolds facilitated by methods in homotopy theory.



- Alexander Kupers (University of Toronto)

- Manuel Krannich (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology)

- Markus Land (University of Munich)

- Andrew Senger (Harvard University)








To appear.

Topics will include embedding calculus, diffeomorphism spaces, algebraic L-theory, synthetic homotopy theory and Adams spectral sequences.
















We kindly ask the participants to arrange their own accommodation.

We recommend Hotel 9 Små Hjem, which is pleasant and inexpensive and offers rooms with a kitchen. Other inexpensive alternatives are CabInn, which has several locations in Copenhagen: the Hotel City (close to Tivoli), Hotel Scandinavia (Frederiksberg, close to the lakes), and Hotel Express (Frederiksberg) are the most convenient locations; the latter two are 2.5-3 km from the math department. Somewhat more expensive – and still recommended – options are Hotel Nora and  Ibsen's Hotel.

An additional option is to combine a stay at the CabInn Metro Hotel with a pass for Copenhagen public transportation (efficient and reliable). See information about tickets & prices.













Please fill out the application form by March 15. The deadline for applying for funding has passed.

Decisions will be communicated within a week after the deadlines.
