Title: Directed homotopy theory

Speaker: Sanjeevi Krishnan

Abstract: Directed homotopy theory is a homotopy theory for spaces with some directionality.  The original applications of the subject come from studying concurrent computer programs, but the subject has natural applications in other areas, both theoretical and applied.  We will give a gentle introduction to the subject, some of those applications to optimization and computer science, and some of the most outstanding problems in the subject.
