Chris Schommer-Pries: Dualizability in Low Dimensional Higher Category Theory (Part 1)
Chris Schommer-Pries (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Abstract: The cobordism hypothesis establishes a powerful relationship between extended topological field theories taking values in a symmetric monoidal higher category and objects in that higher category with various kinds of duality. In this setting an extended topological field theory is a higher categorical extension of the Atiyah-Segal axioms which allows for topological bordisms to be decomposed along submanifolds of arbitrary c
1.3 Essential ‘voluntary’ work experience For entry and progression into many careers, voluntary work experience is essential. Teaching, Law, Environmental/Conservation and Social Work are common examples but there are many others. Positions in the Arts, Media, Publishing, Development and Charitable sectors are rarely advertised and are also difficult to enter without a network of contacts, direct practical experience of the industry and enormous enthusiasm. For more details on any of these look at the Prospects website, which

Defeat Dementia in Down's Syndrome
We are conducting a study based at the Cambridge Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Group (www.CIDDRG.org.uk), in partnership with the Down's Syndrome Association (DSA) and the Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre (WIBC) Cambridge to investigate the risk of dementia in people with Down's syndrome (DS). This four year study is funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC). We believe that a chemical (protein) in the brain called beta amyloid may be a key factor in causing dementia of t
