Workshop on String Topology and Related Topics
The workshop will take place at University of Copenhagen April 15-19.
We will focus on the following papers and topics, each of which will be discussed in two two-hour lectures. In addition to the lectures, the program will include some individual research talks.
- Goresky and Hingston, Loop products and closed geodesics, Duke Math. J. 150 (2009), no. 1, 117–209. MR2560110. arXiv:0707.3486.
Lecturers: David Chataur and Nancy Hingston. Notes for the lectures.
- Alexander Kupers' construction of higher string topology operations using a variant of Bödigheimer’s model for moduli spaces of Riemann surfaces ("Constructing higher string operations using radial slit configurations", http://math.stanford.edu/~kupers/)
Lecturers: Daniela Egas and Alexander Kupers. Tentative outline for the lectures.
- Behrend, Ginot, Noohi, and Xu, String topology for stacks, Astérisque 343, 2012. arXiv:0712.3857.
Lecturers: Richard Hepworth and Gregory Ginot. Tentative outline for the lectures.
- Wahl and Westerland's work on the Hochschild homology of algebras over PROPs with A_\infty multiplication (Wahl and Westerland, "Hochschild homology of structured algebras", arXiv:1110.0651 and Wahl, "Universal operations in Hochschild homology", arXiv:1212.6498)
Lecturers: Dmitri Pavlov and Nathalie Wahl. Tentative outline for the lectures.
The talks will be in various auditoriums at the H.C. Ørsted Institute, a building complex which houses the University of Copenhagen Department of Mathematical Sciences. See this map. For planning trips on public transportation, we recommend Rejseplanen.
