K-theory and characteristic classes in topology and complex geometry (a tribute
组织者 Organizer：Claire Voisin
时间 Time： 2021年4月13 日 北京时间21:00-22:30
地点 Venue：Zoom Online
We will discuss the K-theory of complex vector bundles on topological spaces and of holomorphic vector bundles on complex manifolds. A central question is the relationship between K-theory and cohomology. This is done in topology by constructing characteristic classes, but other constructions appear in the holomorphic or algebraic context. We will discuss the Hirzebruch-Riemann-Roch formula, the Atiyah-Hirzebruch spectral sequence, the role of complex cobordism, and other tools developed later on, like the Bloch-Ogus spectral sequence. This talk is part of a subprogram of the Mathematical Science Literature Lecture series, a Memorial Conference for the founders of index theory: Atiyah, Bott, Hirzebruch, and Singer.
