Cohomology of Arithmetic Groups and Applications to Arithmetic
|Date:||November 1, 2008
Cahit Arf Auditorium
This is an exposition of the basic notions and concepts which are needed to build up the cohomology theory of arithmetic groups. We are dealing with objects which have a certain degree of complexity and in this text I give some explanation of the background needed to understand the the definitions and the general structural elements of these objects.
