Applications of gauge theory to low dimensional topology and maybe combinatorics 

Tomasz Mrowka (MIT)

Location:  Hill 705
Date & time: Friday, 06 April 2018 at 4:00PM - 5:00PM

Abstract:  This talk will be a (hopefully) gentle introduction to applications of gauge theory to some questions in low dimensional topology. I will focus on some methods with origins in the mathematics behind gauge theory for detecting the unknot and hint at how extensions of these might give a route to a new proof of the four-color map theorem.
