Atiyah-Singer Index Seminar

Tue., Jan. 19, 2016 10:00 a.m.

Location: RIC 215

  • Speaker:  Asghar Ghorbanpour
  • Title: Vector Bundles, II
  • Abstract: 

    This is a quick introduction to the theory of vector bundles
    on topological spaces. We will go over some constructions like
    vector bundles defined by clutching functions and hence classify
    all vector bundles on spheres. We will also discuss how a proper
    notion of vector bundles for algebras and C*-algebras can
    be developed.

    Please note that the approach to the topic in this series of lectures
    can be considered as a complementary approach to the one taken in
    the "characteristic classes seminar" and, therefore, the participants
    of that seminar can also benefit from these sessions.
