Topology Seminar (Introductory Talk): Link homotopy in dimensions 3

Seminar | May 3 | 2:10-3 p.m. | 736 Evans Hall

 Peter Teichner, UC Berkeley

 Department of Mathematics

In our two talks, we'll consider link maps of many spheres into another sphere. Link maps are continuous maps such that connected components in the source are mapped disjointly into the target. John Milnor introduced the notion of a link homotopy of a link in 3-space and we'll recall his approach in the talk at 2 pm.
