We meet on Thursdays at 10:00 AM (sharp) in room Evans 939.
Organizers: Anton Dochtermann and Alex Engstrom .
This semester we are studying Davis-Januszkiewicz spaces, and related constructions in toric geometry/topology and algebra. We're loosely following the text `Torus Actions and Their Applications in Topology and Combinatorics' by Buchstaber and Panov. Click on the title to download an early draft of the book.
Some other interesting papers along these lines:
`Moment-angle complexes, monomial ideals, and Massey products' by Denham and Suciu.
`Moment-angle manifolds and complexes' (lecture notes) by Panov.
`Cup-products in generalized moment-angle complexes' by Bahri, Bendersky, Cohen, and Gitler.
Also, a whole page devoted to Toric Topology in Manchester, with more relevant material.
Some other ideas for future topics include:
