Topological Witt groups and Reality

Thursday, November 20, 2014 -
3:00pm to 4:00pm
This is joint work with Karoubi.  Given an algebraic variety over the real numbers, we compare its Witt groups with the topological Witt groups of the underlying manifold with involution using Atiyah's Real K-theory, Brumfiel's Theorem and a conjecture of Bruce Williams.
