Student Geometry/Topology Seminar
I will introduce the notion of a configuration space, and present several fundamental theorems regarding the fundamental groups of configuration spaces. Special attention will be paid to the configuration space of a set of n marked points on the plane, and braid groups. If time permits, I will present some results on the stability of the cohomology of these spaces as representations of symmetric groups. Speaker(s): Nicholas Wawrykow (UM)
