What is ... a Morse Theory?

This page hosts information on Carsten Schultz's talk "What is ... Morse Theory?" at the "What is ...?" seminar. The talk will take place on Friday, November 13, 4pm at FU Arnimallee 6, SR 031.

Abstract

A Morse function on a differentiable manifold is a real valued function with only nice critical points. The idea behind Morse Theory is to use a function like this to obtain global information on the manifold. We will have a look at some instances of this approach.
