Speaker: José María Cantarero López, CIMAT Mérida

Abstract: Spaces of group homomorphisms from a discrete group to a Lie group have turned up over the last twenty years in theoretical physics, combinatorics, symplectic geometry and algebraic topology. In this talk I will first introduce some of the connections with these areas and some of their homotopy invariants. Then I will talk about recent joint work with A. Adem and J. M. Gomez where we study their twisted equivariant K-theory.
