Mathematics Colloquium

SPEAKER: Prof. Nikolay Brodskiy

TITLE:  Creating and topologizing universal covering spaces

ABSTRACT: Classical theory of covering spaces works well for spaces with small loops being homotopically trivial (e.g. manifolds). With increasing interest in spaces with rich local structure (e.g. fractals), there have been various attempts of creating a more general theory of covering spaces. I will outline recent progress in the area. The talk is designed to be accessible to graduate students familiar with the classical concept of a covering map.
