Title: A glimpse of manifold calculus via embedding spaces
Speaker: Yuqing Shi (Junior talk, 4pm)
Manifold calculus is a useful theory which imports homotopy theoretical tools to analyse spaces of maps between manifolds. It provides us with a tower of fibrations, approximating the space of morphisms. In this talk, I’ll give an introduction of manifold calculus, via the example of embedding spaces of manifolds.
