Course Description | Office Hours | Lecture Notes
This will be a survey course of topics in Higher Algebra, or algebra over the sphere spectrum. We will begin by discussing modern proofs of various Nilpotence Theorems in algebraic topology. Eventually, we will aim to discuss recent work in algebraic K-theory and topological cyclic homology.
There will be no final exam. Students taking this course for credit will need to submit a final paper by the last day of class.
