## Sarah Browne## University of SheffieldI am a PhD student in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Sheffield, under the supervision of Paul Mitchener. My areas of study are functional analysis and topology, and in particular I am looking at E-theory, a bivariant functor from C*-algebras to abelian groups. I am forming a topological spectrum for E-theory to apply in differential geometry. ## MAS436/MAS6340 Functional AnalysisLecture notes for Semester 2 with corrections Problem booklet for Semester 2 Solutions for each chapter will appear in due course, as the semester. For autumn semester lecture notes see Paul Mitchener's page. Previous exam papers and solutions can also be found there.## PapersA Bott periodicity proof for real graded C*-algebras. arXiv. ## Seminars and Talks

I am also doing a Q&A lecture style session for analysis. ## Outreach workI am currently involved in Maths Academy Interactive Lecture Series, and now after helping for one year I am an organiser. In 2013 I gave a joint talk on Infinity and in 2014 a individual talk on Topology and the Euler characteristic. In June 2014 I gave 4 lectures on the Euler Characteristic to year 10 students who visited the university for the day. I also give talks for open days now and again, these have centralised around coding in the past but I'm moving towards more topological talks. ## PreviouslyI studied my MMath degree at the University of Sheffield, where I undertook a fourth year project supervised by David Applebaum on the topic of Fourier series on finite abelian groups. ## Contact DetailsSarah Browne Last updated: 27 April 2017 |
