“Etale Groupoid algebras, I”

The purpose of these lectures is to go over recent work of Ben Steinberg on Etale groupoid algebras, which can be viewed as purely algebraic analogues of etale groupoid C-algebras. The first lecture will just consist of an overview of the topic along with some of the basic background.
