Algebraic K-theory, regulators and the volume conjecture in knot theoryGeometry/Topology
|Speaker: ||Jerry Kaminker, UC Davis|
|Location: ||2112 MSB|

Regulators are homomorphisms defined on algebraic K-theory. In some cases they can be expressed in terms of characteristic classes and this leads to a relation with the volume conjecture in knot theory. This talk will survey some of this material.
Joint with the string theory seminar.
