For this quarter and the next, the proseminars will be on the following two topics: Factorization Homology (mostly on Wednesdays) and Goodwillie Calculus (mostly on Thursdays).
Here are the syllabi: Factorization Homology, Goodwillie Calculus.
Unless otherwise specified, the proseminar meets from 2:30pm to 3:30pm on Wednesdays and 3:40pm to 4:40pm on Thursdays in Eckhart 203.
