Christoph Winges (MPI, Bonn): Automorphisms of manifolds and the Farrell-Jones conjectures
April 25th, 2017


I will discuss how recent progress on the Farrell-Jones conjecture for Waldhausen's algebraic K-theory of spaces contributes to our understanding of automorphism groups of high-dimensional, closed, aspherical manifolds, and how this may lead to concrete computations.
This talk covers joint work with Enkelmann, Kasprowski, Lück, Pieper, Ullmann and Wegner.
