Calculating Thom polynomials

Presented by:

Date: 
Tuesday 1st March 2011 - 10:00 to 11:00
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
There is a polynomial invariant, introduced by Thom in the 1950s, which links the enumerative characteristics of manifolds with the type of singularities which cannot be avoided in maps between them. In this talk, I will report on recent progress in calculating these polynomials.
