Representation stability and applications to homological stability
Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium
I will give an introduction to the theory of representation stability, through the lens of its applications in homological stability. I'll focus on three applications: homological stability for configuration spaces of manifolds; understanding the stable (and unstable) homology of arithmetic lattices; and stability for twisted homology such as H_i( GL_n(R); R^n ), where the coefficients change along with the groups.
