Abstract:

Stability is a phenomenon that adds a lot of structure to algebraic topology, particularly to homotopy groups. I will explain and motivate the construction of stable homotopy groups and give a brief overview of examples, known results and open challenges. This talk does not require any prerequisites in topology.
