Additional Information
Abstract: You wouldn't eat your coffee cup or drink out of your donut, but to a topologist, these objects are, in a sense, the same. But why? From the shape of everyday objects to the shape of our universe, a topologist sees the world from a different perspective. We will give an introduction to topological spaces and functions known as topological invariants which help us to distinguish one topological space from another. After this talk, maybe you will see the world with different eyes!
