EPSRC/LMS Instructional Course for Graduate Students
30 August - 3 September 1999

This course is an instructional course for postgraduate students. It is intended both for those who work in Topology and for those for whom it is a useful research tool.

The programme consists of three lecture courses; each of six hours. The aim of the course will be to present some of the basic ideas and techniques in algebraic and geometric topology and to give an indication of the ways in which topological ideas figure in many different areas of mathematics: for example in algebraic geometry, differential geometry, global analysis and even theoretical physics.

  • Professor E.G. Rees (Edinburgh): Algebraic Topology
  • Professor J.D.S. Jones (Warwick): Characteristic Classes
  • Professor R. Kirby (Berkeley): Smooth Four Manifolds

There will also be extended Tutorial Sessions.

Travel and accommodation charges for EPSRC students will be paid for by EPSRC. There will be a registration fee of £60.00. The London Mathematical Society has made a grant to this meeting and funds are available to help support other research students.
