The goal of this summer school is to introduce participants to modern tools used in the study of fixed point theory in algebraic topology and homotopy theory. The workshop will be centered around mini-courses whose goal will be to introduce and apply tools such as categorical approaches to duality, spectra and trace methods in algebraic K-theory to the study of classical fixed point theory.
The intended audience for this summer school should be familiar with the material in Hatcher (except the appendices). This reflects our goal that the school be accessible to second and third year students with an interest in algebraic topology from any PhD granting institution. The school will be structured around a few mini-courses which will run in an active-learning style.
