zum Anlass des 80. Geburtstages von Prof. Dr. Tammo tom Dieck

Donnerstag, 08. November 2018

um 16:15 Uhr


Sitzungszimmer, Mathematisches Institut



Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Lück (Bonn)
The notion of a classifying space for families was introduced by tom Dieck and plays a prominent role in various areas in mathematics.
We will give the basic notion, elementary properties and discuss nice models, which come from and are relevant for questions in algebra, geometry, groups theory and topology. Then we will discuss their appearance in the Farrell-Jones Conjecture and present the status and applications of the Farrell-Jones Conjecture.

Prof. Dr. Holger Reich (Berlin)
The talk will give an introduction to topological cyclic homology, a quite sophisticated invariant of rings and ring spectra. The construction of topological cyclic homology makes heavy use of equivariant stable homotopy theory, one of the many fields, where tom Dieck made essential contributions.



Am Abend des 8. November 2018 findet ein festliches Dinner statt (auf eigene Kosten). Um Anmeldung wird hier gebeten.
