From Higher Invariants

Higher Invariants Oberseminar (HIOB 8)

The topic in this semester is index theory. The idea is to understand the classical index theorem of Atiyah-Singer through Connes' groupoid approach while learning higher aspects of C^{*}-algebra K-theory and Lie groupoids.

Dates and location

Mondays, 12-14, SFB Seminar Room.


Here you may find the extended program.
