Junior Hausdorff Trimester Program

September 5 – December 22, 2016

The Junior Hausdorff Trimester Program gave young mathematicians (postdocs, junior faculty) the opportunity to carry out collaborative research in Topology.

The focus was on the following research topics:

  • Interactions between Goodwillie calculus, chromatic methods, and unstable homotopy theory
  • Knot concordance and 4-manifolds
  • L2-Invariants
  • New perspectives in A-theory
  • Real trace methods
  • The Farrell-Jones conjecture
  • The operad of little disks and algebraic geometry
