Kolloquium Prof. Dr. Oliver Goertsches, Universität Marburg: "From Lie group actions to graph theory to cohomology"

Nov 29, 2016 from 04:15 PM to 05:15 PM


GKM theory associates to certain kinds of Lie group actions on manifolds a graph from which one can compute the equivariant cohomology of the action, as well as the de Rham cohomology of the manifold that is acted on. We will explain a result about the GKM theory of isometric actions on positively curved manifolds obtained in joint work with Michael Wiemeler.
