Course Overview

We will introduce and study the stable homotopy category via orthogonal spectra. Classical applications to geometric topology and computations will be outlined. Towards the end of the lecture we will investigate equivariant stable homotopy theory. 

Knowledge of basic concepts from (unstable) homotopy theory will be assumed.

Further information and material will be provided through the KVV portal. Also all anouncements will be made through it, please make sure you register with an up-to-date email address. If you have any problems accessing KVV, please email F. Levikov.
