# Homotopy Group Actions and Group Cohomology

Thursday, October 19, 2017 -

3:00pm to 4:00pm

Understanding the symmetries of a topological space is a classical problem in mathematics. In this talk we will consider the somewhat more flexible notion of a group action up to homotopy. This leads to interesting interactions between topology, group theory and representation theory. This is joint work with Jesper Grodal.
