Derived Algebraic Geometry Seminar

UT Austin, Spring 2015

4-6pm Wednesday
RLM 8.136

The Derived Algebraic Geometry seminar meets every Wednesday at 4pm (and occasionally Friday), in RLM 8.136. (Check the schedule below for exact dates.)

This is a learning seminar organized by Richard Hughes (rhughes [at] math [dot] utexas [dot] edu) and Aaron Royer. It it the continuation of a Fall 2014 seminar on Rational Homotopy Theory, which was organised by Dan Kaplan.

This aim of this seminar is to study derived algebraic geometry, with a focus on understanding Jacob Lurie's work on formal moduli problems (DAG X). A list of references organized by topic can be found below.
