Student Algebra Seminar: Burrull -- Classical motivation

Gaston will give the Seminar’s twelfth and final talk for Semester 1 tomorrow afternoon 
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  

Abstract: In this talk, I will give an attempt to motivate further the study of 
perverse sheaves. I will give some classical homology examples to put ourselves in the 
perspective of the mathematicians in the 70’s, before the theory of intersection 
homology was discovered.

Time and date: 2 pm Wednesday 30 June.
