Dear Colleagues and Students,
You are cordially invited to the Topology Seminar organized by the Department of Mathematics.
Speaker: Akhil Mathew (University of Chicago)
“Descent and vanishing in algebraic K-theory via group actions”
Abstract: I will explain some descent and vanishing results in the algebraic K-theory of ring pectra, motivated by the redshift philosophy of Ausoni-Rognes. These results are all proved by considering group actions on stable $infty$-categories and their K-theory, as well as some tools coming from chromatic homotopy theory.
Joint work with Dustin Clausen, Niko Naumann, and Justin Noel.
