Lectures next week in Lisbon on Kervaire Invariant One
Posted by Andreas Holmstrom on April 28, 2009
If you are desperate to hear more about the Kervaire Invariant One problem, it might be a good idea to go to Portugal next week and listen to the first-hand account presented by Ravenel in this lecture series.
There are also lots of useful comments on the problem at the n-category cafe, including some comments of Mike Hopkins, and an explanation of the connections with exotic spheres.
Update: The video from Hopkins’ talk is available from the conference website (at the moment only as a huge mov file).
Article in Nature News.
Some remarks by Landweber.
