The goal of this summer school is to introduce participants to tools and ideas from algebraic topology and homotopy theory that are used in the study of fixed point theory. This will be a problem set focused summer school surrounding four mini-courses:

1) Fixed point theory and Nielsen theory

2) Categorical Approach to Duality

3) Spectra

4) Trace Methods

See more details on the content of each mini-course on our webpage.

Each day there will be:

• three sessions, each of which consists of a 15/20 minute talk introducing the basic ideas followed by a problem session.

• an hour or so for a more conventional lecture, when members of the scientific committee or participants will present on current research.

While the design of this summer school is mainly aimed at second and third year graduate students and/or those who are familiar with the material in Hatcher's Algebraic Topology (except appendices)you should not feel that these are firm barriers to entry. If you feel that you would benefit from this summer school, please apply.
