Algebra and its applications [url]
Simplicial Abelian Groups and the W Bar Construction
    - Michael Niemeier, FSU
Time: 3:35 pm Room: 104 LOV
Abstract/Desc: A simplicial abelian group is a contravariant functor from the ordinal number category to the category of abelian groups and a bisimplicial abelian group is a contravariant functor from the ordinal number category to the category of simplicial abelian groups. A result of Duskin gives that the W bar construction on a simplicial abelian group factors as TN, where N is a functor from simplicial abelian groups to bisimplicial abelian groups taking the nerve level-wise and T is a functor from bisimplicial abelian groups to simplicial abelian groups which is the Artin-Mazur anti-diagonal functor. Using this result we will show that the W bar applied n times to a simplicial abelian group factors as TK(-,n), where K(-,n) is a certain functor from simplicial abelian groups to bisimplicial abelian groups that we will define in the talk.
