Homotopy 2023


The Homotopy 2023 conference, in part to honor NU Mathematics faculty member Prof. Paul Goerss and his contributions to the field, was hosted by Northwestern University March 20-24.  

The Emphasis Year is designed to investigate particular topics in mathematics over the course of an academic year.   For 2022-2023 our Emphasis Year is on Homotopy Theory. In addition to the topology seminar-- organized this quarter by Prof. Noah Riggenbach-- we will have a variety of activities throughout the year. These include topic courses in Topology as well as some longer-term visitors (such as Prof. Hans-Werner Henn from Strasbourg and Prof. Mark Behrens from Notre Dame).

Our Emphasis Year for 2023-2024 will be “Asymptotics in Geometry and Analysis:  The Mathematics of Steve Zelditch”. The organizers will be NU faculty members Yuchen Liu, Gabor Szekelyhidi, Jared Wunsch and Ben Weinkove.
