What is... the field with one element?

This page hosts information on Laura Hinsch's talk "What is ... the field with one element?" at the "What is ... ?" seminar series.

Abstract

The field with one element is a recurring legend. In this talk I will try to explain where the idea came from, what it could be, what it might be and what it cannot be.
