Rational Homotopy Theory and its Interactions

English Version

CIMPA-MOROCCO research school

Rabat, July 11-20, 2016

This Research School is addressed graduate students and young researchers in Geometry, Topology and Mathematical Physics, although undergraduates and senior researchers in other areas may profit of the introductory lectures too, and are warmly invited to join the School.

The main goal is to provide participants with a solid background in Algebraic Topology, and more specifically in Rational Homotopy Theory. This will be used as the starting point and common framework for the presentation of current research topics including operads, string topology, applied topology, and algebraic geometry.

We planned 30 hours of courses, 14 hours of exercises or/and discussion sessions, and 6x20mn-communications. The first and introductory course on the subject will be taught in French, while the other courses will be taught in English.

We have maximized the number of senior speakers in the courses so providing the PhD students with the opportunity of creating connections with well established researchers upon they may build a future research career.
