Jeremy Miller (Purdue University) — Exotic stabilization maps for configuration spaces
In classical homological stability, one considers families of spaces Xn and maps Xn → Xn+1 that induce isomorphisms in homology in a range increasing with n. Recently, there have been many new stability results involving families of spaces without obvious maps between them. I will talk about a new perspective on how to construct such maps in the case of configuration spaces. Factorization homology and Ek-cells will be the key tools.
