Introduction to 𝓁2-Betti numbers for groups, part 2: Group homology

Ruiyuan (Ronnie) Chen (UIUC Math)

Abstract: We will discuss equivariant homology for spaces equipped with a group action, defined as the ordinary homology of the "homotopy quotient" of the action. Group homology is the special case for the trivial action on a point. Time permitting, we will then begin to discuss the theory of (Hattori-Stallings) traces, which provides a better-behaved equivariant analog of torsion-free rank.
