Path Products in Projective Space

Friday, February 6, 2015 -
1:30pm to 2:30pm
We compute the mod 2 homology of the space of paths in CP^n with endpoints in RP^n, and its algebra structure with respect to the Pontryagin-Chas-Sullivan product . Our method combines Morse theory with geometry. Joint work with Alexandru Oancea.
