Student Algebra Seminar: Baine -- Derived categories of sheaves

Joseph Baine will give the Seminar’s fourth talk for Semester 1 tomorrow morning on
Zoom.  Please find the details below.  Anyone who would like to attend the talk or join
the mailing list is warmly invited to e-mail  

Title: Derived categories of sheaves 

Abstract: In this talk we will review the categories of sheaves, local systems and
constructible sheaves on a topological space.  We will then consider operations
(Grothendieck’s six functor formalism) on these categories and their derived
analogues.  These categories will provide context and examples for many of the notions
we have previously seen.  

Time and date: 11 am, Thursday 15 April
