IPMU Komaba Lectures,Homotopy Theory (before 1970)

[ 講演概要 ]
Tuesday, April -- July, 2008
First Lecture Aprl 8


Recently the notion of homotopy theory has been widely used in many areas of
contemporary mathematics including mathematical physics.
The purpose of the lectures is to present an overview of the developments
of homotopy theory mainly from 1940's through 1960's, partly in view of
more recent progress in other areas.

(1) Prehistory of homotopy theory
-- Hurewicz theorem, Hopf theorem, Freudentahl suspension theorem
(2) Eilenberg-MacLane space and Postnikov system
(3) Steenrod algebras
(4) Serre's theorem on the homotopy groups of spheres
(5) Rational homotopy theory
(6) Stable homotopy category and Adams spectral sequence
(7) Vector bundles and characteristic classes
(8) Complex cobordism and Quillen's theorem
(9) Miscellaneous topics
