Objectives

The Cascade Topology Seminar is a biannual gathering of topologists from the Pacific Northwest and Southwestern Canada. The diversity of the seminar is one of its strengths, and topics of the seminar vary a great deal within topology. This meeting of the seminar is represented by contributions from string topology, knot and braid invariants, stable homotopy theory and K-theory as well as a featured talk on the solution to the Kervaire conjecture, which was recently solved.
