Description

A weekend workshop on the Calculus of Functors (in its various flavors) at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio.

The goal of the workshop is to expose the younger generation of researchers (graduate students, postdocs, and early-career researchers) to the ideas underlying functor calculus (in its various flavors) together with applications and new results in mathematics that have some connection or influence from this circle of ideas.

The first talk on Saturday (3/16) will begin at 8:30am, and the workshop will end on Sunday (3/17) at 1pm.

Invited talks:

  • Tom Goodwillie (Brown)
