Homotopy Theory and Spaces of Representations

Colloque par Alejandro Adem

Spaces of representations play a key role in many areas of mathematics and physics. In this talk we will apply basic methods from topology to analyze them, seeking to determine the number and structure of their path components. In particular we will discuss the space of commuting n-tuples in a compact Lie group.
