    The cohomology of toral complements

    Friday 1st June, 12-1pm, Carslaw 159.

    Toral complements can be considered as non-linear versions of hyperplane complements and arise naturally in the study of linear algebraic groups as the set of regular semisimple elements (in some maximal torus). In this talk we will describe a method for computing the cohomology of such spaces and discuss some applications related to regular semisimple elements.
