- FU-Students should register via Campus Management.
- Non-FU-students should register via MyCampus/Whiteboard.
- The course will be held remotely using WebEx.
Winter Term 2021/2022
Time and place:
- Lecture: Thursday, 2pm--4pm, online.
- Final Exam/homework: oral exam -- individual dates.
Prerequisites: We assume familiarity with basic concepts from topology and homotopy theory. We assume basic concepts from homotopy theory and some familiarity with infinity categories (quasicategories) as developed for example in Rezk's lecture notes "Introduction to quasicategories" and layed out in the lecture Higher Algebra from the summer semester.
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 stable infinity-categories and the generalization of classical algebra to these contexts, as developed by Jacob Lurie. This course builds on the theory of infinity-categories developed in the course Higher Algebra.
