Topological K-Theory, the Hopf Invariant One Problem, and Real Division Algebras

Brian Shin (UIUC Math)

Abstract: The techniques of K-theory were introduced to the world by Grothendieck in the 1957 in the setting of algebraic geometry. These techniques can very naturally be translated into a purely topological setting, resulting in a theory called topological K-theory. In this talk, I will introduce topological K-theory and one of its earliest applications: the Hopf invariant one problem. I will then use these results to answer the question: in which dimensions is it possible to have a division algebra over the real numbers.

Truncation in Hahn fields with a derivation

Santiago Camacho (UIUC Math)

Abstract: A subset $S$ of a Hahn field $k[[\mathfrak{M}]]$ is said to be truncation closed if for every series $f \in S$ all truncations of $f$ lie in $S$. There have been many results about preserving truncation closedness under several types of ring extensions. We show some preservation results in the differential setting.
