Abstract/Media

In algebraic topology, one key way of understanding group actions on spaces is by considering families of fixed points under subgroups.  In this talk, we will discuss this basic structure and its fundamental role in understanding equivariant algebraic topology.  I will then describe some recent joint work with A. Osorno that builds on fixed point information to create equivariant cohomology theories.
