Whilst classification results may not, on the surface, appear too

interesting, the classification program for nuclear C*-algebras has

raised numerous thought-provoking questions and led to the development of many useful, structural tools that have applications outside of the

program. In this talk, we shall discuss why this is, and give a number of

For an ideal $I \triangleleft R$, we will define the relative $K$-groups $K_0(R,I)$, $K_1(R,I)$ and talk about the (not long, not short, but just right) exact sequence. This sequence will provide us with a useful tool for computing $K$-groups.

We will continue and finish the proof that $K^0 (X) \cong K_0 (C(X))$

for $X$ a compact Hausdorff space. We'll see some simple examples, but

computing the $K_0$ (or $K^0$) can be difficult in general. In hope to

aid computation, we'll take a look at the functoriality of $K_0$ and

Classical Lagrangian interpolation states that one can always prescribe

$n+1$ values of a single variable polynomial of degree $n$. This result

paves the way for many beautiful generalizations in algebraic geometry.

I will discuss a few of these generalizations and their relevance to

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
