Introduction: Gottfried Yang

edited April 15 in Chat

I finished my PhD thesis 2011 about "model structures (à la Thomason) on the diagram categories and Kan-extensions" and am now independent researcher. My interest was stable homotopy theory and arithmetic geometry. Newly I'm also interested in 1) univalent homotopy type theory; 2) fibered categories and stacks, concretely, "GROTHENDIECK'S "6 OPERATIONS" IN CATEGORICAL LOGIC".

    Nice ! Where did you do your PhD?

    We're seeing a tiny taste of Grothendieck's 6 operations already in our study of posets: in Lecture 9 we saw that any function \(f : X \to Y\) induces a functor \(f^* : P(Y) \to P(X) \) that has both a left adjoint \(f_{!} : P(X) \to P(Y) \) and a right adjoint \( f_{\ast} : P(X) \to P(Y) \). All of this is a watered-down version of what happens for topoi or model categories. To me it will be very exciting when more and more of these ideas find their way into applied mathematics.
