Description

Andrew Ranicki and his theory of algebraic surgery played a central role in linking manifold theory, algebraic K-theory, and its close cousin L-theory. These areas have seen great developments and advances in the last decade from distinct research communities. This workshop will bring together mathematicians working on the topology of high-dimensional manifolds and their automorphisms with those working on the algebraic K-theory (and its cousins hermitian K-theory and L-theory) of rings and ring spectra, in order to share recent progress in these areas and kindle a fresh interaction between them.
