Higher algebraic K-theory

October 18, 2021 at 10:00January 31, 2022 at 12:00 CEST

Free
In the upcoming winter semester I teach an introductory course on higher algebraic K-theory. The course will be in a hybrid format: the lectures take place in person in Mainz, but one can also participate online via Microsoft Teams (see below). 

* Time: Mondays, 10-12

* Target group: Master’s or PhD students

* Prerequisites: good knowledge of commutative algebra, some homological algebra, and basic topology

* Content: The goal is to prove the basic theorems for Quillen’s higher K-groups of exact or abelian categories (resolution, dévissage, localization) with applications to the K-theory of rings and schemes. The course will start by introducing the necessary homotopical background (simplicial sets, classifying spaces of categories).

* Online participation: If you are interested in following the course online, please send me a short email. I will then add you to the MS Teams team as a guest.
