Title:On physics and Bott periodicity
Seminar:Noncommutative Geometry Seminar
Speaker:John Roe, Penn State
Abstract:
This is the second of two talks that aim to serve as a warmup for the visit of Alexei Kitaev, who will give the physics department colloquium on March 16 and the GAP seminar on March 17.

This second warmup talk will be about the relation between Bott periodicity, seen from the point of view of controlled topology, and recent work of Mike Freedman, Kitaev, and others.
