Two lectures on infinity category theory

Speaker: Emily Riehl, Johns Hopkins University

Time: June 21, and June 23, 15:00-17:00
Place: IHP

Abstract: I will explain some core basics of infinity category theory: equivalences, adjunctions, limits and colimits, with the goal of introducing stable infinity categories.

The only essential prerequisite is the notion of a strict 2-category. If folks want to look at something in advance, I'd suggest section B.1 of the "Elements" book, and in fact B.1.1 - B.1.7 is enough, with the notion of pasting diagram in B.1.4-B.1.5 being the most important.
