 Special Lecture

Date: October 18, 2005 16:30-18:00
Venue: Room 309, Building 8, Department of Mathematics, Faculty of Science, Hokkaido University
Organizer: G. Ishikawa

Title: THE HOMOTOPY METHOD
Comment:
I will try to explain, basing on many examples, that this method and its modifications is a very powerful tool. Of course, this talk can be made informal if there will be only few people interested in it.
