University of Colorado at BoulderSeminar on
Deformation Theory


This
is a
working seminar meant to introdruce deformation theory.
The
seminar will be held in MATH 350.
The mathematics department is at the corner of
Colorado Ave
and Folsom St. For a map of the campus, click here. This could
loosely be considered a
continuation of last spring's seminar on Stacks
and
Groupoids (although the material from that seminar
is not a
prerequisite).
