New computations in topological Hochschild and cyclic homology

Department of Mathematics

About the Project

Algebraic K-theory is an invariant of rings which connects algebraic topology to number theory. In 70s Quillen introduced higher algebraic K-theory groups and since then a lot of progress has been made in computing these groups. In general, it is very difficult to make such computations and a lot of tools have been developed to carry them out. Topological Hochschild and cyclic homologies are such tools (THH and TC).

This project will focus on concrete computations of THH and TC. More concretely, it will deal with THH and TC of certain differential graded algebras coming from number theory. Developments in the recent years have improved methods for computing these invariants and the project will extensively use the new technology.

Applicants should have (or expect to achieve) a UK first class honours degree in Mathematics, or a 2:1 honours degree in Mathematics alongside a Masters with Merit or Distinction, also in Mathematics with knowledge of - Algebraic topology, stable and unstable homotopy theory, basic homological algebra and category theory
