Geometry & Topology Seminar

Title: On manifolds homeomorphic to the n-sphere
Speaker: Somnath Basu (IISER-Kolkata)
Date: 11 May 2023
Time: 3:00 pm
Venue: LH-1

We shall discuss Reeb’s Theorem and basic differential topology of Morse functions. This was used by Milnor to prove the existence of exotic spheres in 7 dimensions. We shall propose a generalization of Reeb’s Theorem and discuss a proof of it. This is joint work with Sachchidanand Prasad.
