This reading course is devoted to some topics in homological algebra and representation theory. Prerequisites: Representation Theory.
This year, the course is devoted to the concept of an infinity category. In the first session, Rosanna Laking will guide us through the video of an introductory lecture by Emily Riehl. Next, we will review the notion of a model category and discuss some motivating examples from algebraic topology. Then we will read some chapters of the book "Higher Categories and Homotopical Algebra" by Denis-Charles Cisinski. Finally, there will be a lecture series delivered by Gustavo Jasso from the University of Bonn.
