Why homology is awesome

Sarah Yeakel (UIUC)

Abstract: The original motivation for defining homology was as a tool to distinguish topological spaces. Now there are many types of homology theories used across geometry and topology, but they all share some common properties that make them particularly interesting. In this talk, we'll discuss some examples of homology computations, highlight some general characteristics to appreciate, and explain how this all should remind you a bit of freshman calculus.
