The seminar topic this semester will be "Vector bundles on manifolds".
We are going to review the basics of manifolds, differential forms and
de Rham cohomology. During most of the semester we are going to work with
the definitions and properties of vector bundles. We are going to explore
examples of vector bundles on the complex projective space. Towards the
end of the semester we might talk about the splitting principle and
This seminar course is aimed primarily at third- and fourth-year students majoring in mathematics.
I will start by giving a few initial lectures, but after a week or two will assign topics to students to present in class.
