Teaching assistant: Dr. Thomas Rot  (email: thomas (dot) rot (at) uni-koeln (dot) de)


Language of the oral presentations:  English


Prerequisites:  Although it is not strictly required, it is recommended that the students attending this seminar also attend the Algebraic Topology course.


Content of the presentations: The presentations will treat themes in algebraic topology from a differential point of view (e.g. the De Rham cohomology groups                                                                         of a differentiable manifold) and will be based on several sources, including
