Hopkins gives 2015 Brauer Lectures

image1The annual Alfred Brauer Lectures in Mathematics were given earlier this week by Michael Hopkins from Harvard University. His opening lecture on “Homotopy groups of spheres” was followed by a pair of more specialized lectures on “The Kervaire Invariant” and “The cobordism hypothesis.” Strong interest through the full series of lectures was evidenced by the crowded classroom for his third and final lecture.

Thank you to Jon Wahl for once again organizing the Brauer Lectures.
