Bonn Topology Group
General Information - Members - Topology Seminar
Welcome to the home page of the topology group at the University of Bonn and the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics. The group consists of Professors Carl-Friedrich Bödigheimer, Wolfgang Lück and Stefan Schwede at the Mathematical Institute, Professor Peter Teichner at the Max Planck Institute, and various postdocs, PhD and Master students.
Our main field of investigation is algebraic and differential
topology. For the
non-specialist, there is an archive of essays
about algebraic topology hosted by Davis' Algebraic Topology
We have listed below our most representative research interests. The individual home pages, which you can access from the members page, contain further information.
- Algebraic K- and L-theory
- Configuration spaces
- Moduli spaces
- Equivariant and stable homotopy theory
- 4-dimensional and higher-dimensional manifolds
- Generalized cohomology and field theories
- Structured ring spectra
Information for students
Prospective Master or PhD students are welcome to contact professors, advanced researchers or postdocs of the topology group. Possible sources of funding for graduate students are the International Max Planck Research School and the Bonn International Graduate School of Mathematics.
We collaborate through personal research projects, seminars or workshops with several other Institutes. In prepandemic times, topologists of Nordrhein-Westfalen met twice a year at the NRW Topology Meeting.
If you would like to receive emails with information about topology activities in Bonn, please subscribe to the Bonn topology mailing list. We kindly ask you to use your real name when subscribing so that we can verify that you are a human being with interest in topology (rather than a machine with interest in spam).
