Ninth meeting of the Transpennine Topology Triangle


Department of Mathematics
University of Manchester
Monday March 10th 1997

This will be a working meeting, arranged primarily for the Triangle to fulfill its stated mission of facilitating its joint research programmes. There will therefore be only two talks, plus the usual time for participant discussion. Since the meeting coincides with the NW Dynamics Seminar, participants will also have the chance to broaden their dynamical education.


Programme

11.00 AM (Room 2.09): Neil Boston, (University of Leicester)
``On the representing spaces for mod p KU-theory''

3.15 PM (Room 9.05): Simon Willerton, (University of Edinburgh)
``De Rham homotopy theory and Vassiliev invariants of pure braids''

We expect to visit a local curry house (or similar) early in the evening.

Anyone 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, floor 6, from 1030AM until the first talk, and again after the second talk. Please email Nige Ray nige@ma.man.ac.uk (or John Greenlees j.greenlees@sheffield.ac.uk, or John Hunton jrh7@mcs.le.ac.uk) if you are interested, so we can make approximately the right amount of tea and coffee.
