Manifolds and K-theory: the legacy of Andrew Ranicki

Andrew Ranicki and his theory of algebraic surgery played a central role in linking manifold theory, algebraic K-theory, and its close cousin L-theory. These areas have seen great developments and advances in the last decade from distinct research communities. This workshop will bring together mathematicians working on the topology of high-dimensional manifolds and their automorphisms with those working on the algebraic K-theory (and its cousins hermitian K-theory and L-theory) of rings and ring spectra, in order to share recent progress in these areas and kindle a fresh interaction between them.


Invited participants for this rescheduled workshop, originally due to be held in June 2020, were emailed information on the rescheduled workshop arrangements by ICMS in March 2021. The workshop will now run online from 14.00-18.00 BST each day in the week of 21-25 June 2021.
