Geometry-Topology-Analysis Seminar: Tony Bahri (Rider) -- Recent results about polyhedral products and toric spaces

GTA Seminar in Week 4 -- Wednesday 20 August, 11:00-12:00 in Carslaw 535A 

TITLE: Recent results about polyhedral products and toric spaces 

SPEAKER: Tony Bahri (Rider) 

ABSTRACT: A report on the work of Ali Al-Raisi and on joint work with Martin Bendersky,
Fred Cohen and Sam Gitler.  The topics to be discussed will include the equivariance
properties of the stable splitting of polyhedral products and applications, the
quotients or certain real moment-angle manifolds by the action of cyclic groups and a
calculation of the cohomology of polyhedral products.  

If time allows, I shall say something about the cohomology of the free loop spaces of
certain toric spaces.  


Please join us for lunch after the talk!
