Alexandre Martin's (Uni Wien) crash course
on classifying spaces

IMPAN, Kopernika 18

First meeting: Tuesday, 4.11, 11:00
Second meeting: Wednesday, 5.11, 13:00

Talk 1: Definition of EG, motivation for studying them, lots of examples, and the baby-case of an amalgamated product.

Talk 2: Complexes of groups, complexes of spaces and the explicit construction for small cancellation over a free product (that would come as a complement to the seminar talk, as it would be too long to give details about that during the seminar)

(Talk 3, if there is time and motivation to see the ugly technical bit: The general construction, or at least the main lines because the argument is really technical.)
