Grassmannians in geometry and topology

Matej penciak (UIUC Math)

Abstract: Over the course of this talk I will introduce Grassmannians from different perspectives as increasingly structured spaces. Along the way I will touch on many of the contexts in which they arise including homotopy theory, differential geometry, ennumerative geometry, and algebraic combinatorics.
