Math Seminar Series  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

Colloquium

Colin McLarty from Case Western Reserve University will be speaking.

The topic of the seminar is "Grothendieck's personal idea of a topos as a space."

This is a virtual meeting that will take place over Zoom.

In 33 hours of tape recordings in 1973 Grothendieck described his view of topos beyond what is in the collective volume Théorie des topos et cohomologie étale (SGA 4). In particular, this shows how Grothendieck got his idea of a "generalized topological space" simultaneously with what became etale cohomology during a 1958 talk by Jean-Pierre Serre.
