On-site CIMPA School “Algebraic Methods in Topology”, El Salvador, July 11-22, 2022.

This School will be held at the Mathematics Department of the School of Natural  Sciences and Mathematics of the University of El Salvador, San Salvador, El  Salvador, from July 11 to 22, 2022. 

The main goal of this School is to provide the participants with some elements of the  methods and techniques of Algebra applied to Topology as initiated by H. Poincaré at  the end of the nineteenth century. The School will provide students from Central  America and neighboring countries with an introduction to this subject. 

This School consists in 7 mini-courses covering foundational topics in  Algebra and Topology. This School is aimed for senior-undergraduate math students, graduate math students, and math researchers.

The official languages are English and Spanish.

  2. An introduction to Geometric Group Theory (Language: Spanish).
  3. Categories and Modules (Language: Spanish).
  4. Equivariant Co-Homology (Language: Spanish).
