## Seminar: Topics in (∞,2)-categories

During the Summer semester 2023, I’m organizing a seminar on Topics in (∞,2)-categories. We will have an overview of different models of (∞,2)-categories, as well as some constructions thereof, such as the Gray tensor product and (∞,2)-limits. We will also see some applications of (∞,2)-category theory in derived algebraic geometry, topological quantum field theory, and K-theory.

The seminar will take place on Wednesdays from 10:15-11:45 in room M009 and on zoom. Here is a detailed program.
