Sept. 29: Topology Seminar

September 29, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 3:50 pm

3-3:50 p.m. MB 124. Jens Harlander will present on "Groups, Hornology, and Bias." Abstract: In my talk I will review basics on homology of complexes and groups. I will state and maybe even prove a famous observation of Hopf: the second homology of a complex, modulo spherical elements, depends only on the fundamental group of the complex. This is used in the construction of the bias invariants that can distinguish 2-complexes with the same fundamental group.

Endoplasmic reticulum stress causes unfolded proteins to populate the organelle, eliciting the unfolded protein response. During the unfolded protein response, GRP78—an endoplasmic reticulum master stress regulator—detaches from three endoplasmic reticulum stress sensors (IRE1α, PERK, and…
