Twenty Fifth meeting of the Transpennine Topology Triangle

Department of Mathematics
University of Manchester
Monday 15th May 2000

About Bordism Completions Duality Equivariance Finiteness and Groups

This will be a meeting for all who would like a morning's introduction to equivariant algebraic topology, an afternoon's appreciation of John Greenlees's recent contributions to the subject, and an opportunity for informal discussions with the speaker.

The subject-matter and format is motivated by the rapidly increasing importance of equivariant techniques in all branches of topology. Those (such as the local organiser) who have no background in the subject need a helping hand to get started! We hope some participants might give a 10 minute sketch of their own equivariant interests after the second talk.

(This is a toned down version of the local organizer's copy!)


Both talks will take place in the Maths Tower, Room 9.05; informal discussions will take place at other times in the Brian Hartley Room, floor 6.

Titles and speakers are as follows.

Lunch will be taken locally (at "On the Eight Day", for example), and we expect to visit a local curry house (or similar) early in the evening.

Everyone who wishes to participate is welcome: we shall operate the usual arrangements for assistance with travel expenses. We expect to assemble for tea and coffee in the Brian Hartley Room at about 11.30am, and again after the second talk. Please email Nige Ray (or John Greenlees, or John Hunton if you are interested in attending, so that we can cater for appropriate numbers.
