Andrew Blumberg Receives an NSF Grant for Research in Algebraic K-theory and Equivariant Stable Homotopy Theory

June 11, 2024

Andrew Blumberg, Herbert and Florence Irving Professor of Cancer Data Research and Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science, has been awarded an NSF grant for his project titled "Algebraic K-theory and Equivariant Stable Homotopy Theory: Applications to Geometry and Arithmetic." This grant will support research that explores the connections between algebraic K-theory, a crucial area of abstract algebra, and equivariant stable homotopy theory, which studies spaces with group actions, with potential applications in geometry and arithmetic.

The funded research aims to advance our understanding of complex mathematical structures and their implications in various fields. By combining algebraic and homotopy-theoretic approaches, Blumberg's work seeks to uncover new insights and foster collaborations that bridge different areas of mathematics, enhancing the theoretical foundation and practical applications of these advanced mathematical concepts.
