Princeton-Rider Workshop On the Homotopy Theory of Polyhedral Products

Cartesian products have embedded within them certain natural subsets which are indexed by combinatorial information. The geometric characterization of these subspaces, known now as polyhedral products, has  application in toric geometry and topology, combinatorics, geometric group theory, number theory, homotopy theory and arachnid mechanisms. The workshop will focus on the topology and geometry of these and related spaces.
