Topology Seminar (Introductory Talk): Connections, curvature, holonomy, and instantons

Seminar | December 6 | 2-3 p.m. | 740 Evans Hall

 Raphael Zentner, University of Regensburg

We explain what connections and curvature have to do with representations of fundamental groups, and what instanton Floer homology or, more generally, instanton gauge theory, has to do with all this.
