A Festival Remembering Victor Snaith: Topology, Number Theory and Interactions

10 – 14 July 2023

Lecture Theatre G.10, Fry Building, School of Mathematics
University of Bristol, Woodland Road, Bristol UK

Victor P. Snaith (1944 – 2021) was distinguished not just as an outstanding mathematician who made deep and lasting contributions in algebraic topology and number theory but also as a charismatic leader who enthusiastically developed research communities and generously supported young researchers.

The conference will bring together homotopy theory, cohomology of groups, algebraic K-theory and number theory, the main areas in which Vic worked. The aim is to feature important developments, paying special attention to synergies between these areas, as Vic did in much of his versatile research.
