Slopes in homological stability, the classical way

Presented by:

Tuesday 18th September 2018 - 15:30 to 16:30
INI Seminar Room 2
In joint work with David Sprehn, we prove homological stability with "slope 1" for symplectic, orthogonal and unitary groups over fields other than F_2, following an argument of Quillen for general linear groups. Stability with slope 2 has long been known for all four types of groups over very general rings by a similar, though not equal, argument. I'll present these results and give an overview of the players in such homological stability arguments
