"Gluing constructions and separated schemes"

In this talk, we explain how one can obtain new schemes by gluing together a collection of schemes. This is known as the "gluing construction", which can produce for example projective n-space over a given ring. We also introduce the notion of a separated scheme and explain its relation to Hausdorffness.

"Grothendieck, Whitehead and a reasonably short exact sequence"

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.

Wednesday, November 19, 2014 — 1:30 PM EST

Phillip Xiao, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

We’ve seen the definition of K1 and a six term exact sequence, but we still have no intuition for what they are and how to compute them. This talk will be devoted to filling that gap by showing you some examples.
