From Higher Invariants

The SFB 1085 Higher Invariants at the Faculty of Mathematics at the Universität Regensburg is funded by the DFG. The SFB offers



Invariants play a dominant role in all of mathematics: Invariants should be fine enough to extract the right information, but coarse enough to be computable in specific cases. Higher invariants are a structural and hierarchical refinement of certain classical invariants. The long term goal of this Collaborative Research Centre is to formulate the principles of construction and computation of higher invariants in a systematic way.

  • Higher Chern classes
  • Volumes, L-functions, and polylogarithms
  • Metric structures on cohomology, vector bundles, and cycles
  • Higher categories and enriched structures
