Course Overview

Recent advances in stable homotopy theory and algebraic geometry use the language of higher category theory. The lecture will give an introduction to the theory of infinity-categories, stable infinity-categories and the generalization of classical algebra to these contexts, as developed by Jacob Lurie.
