When: The seminar will be running in Term 2, 2017/2018 on Thursdays 11AM-1PM starting from Week 2.
Location: B3.01, Mathematics Institute.
Organisers: Marco Schlichting and Ferdinando Zanchetta
Contacts: You can write us an email at email@example.com or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Change of schedule weeks 7-8: We are having an extra session in week 7 on Tuesday 9-11 AM, taking place in room S0.18. Also, in week 8 we will meet on Tuesday 9-11AM room S0.18.
Aim: The aim of the seminar is to give an introduction to the language of infinity categories sufficient to read the literature that uses it. We will roughly use the book "Higher categories and homotopical algebra" by Cisinski as a syllabus.
- D.C.Cisinski "Higher categories and homotopical algebra"
- J.Lurie "Higher Topos Theory"
- A. Joyal "Notes on quasi-categories"
- C. Rezk "Stuff About Quasicategories"
