v1-periodic homotopy groups of SU(n)

Thursday, September 29, 2011 -
3:00pm to 5:00pm
I will survey the various results that have been obtained during the past 22 years on the v1-periodic homotopy groups of $SU(n)$. The most recent work has been combinatorial fine tuning to make the statements more explicit. I will discuss conceptual differences between 2-primary and odd-primary groups and implications for actual homotopy groups
