Abstract:

I will discuss the theory of projective modules over smooth (affine) algebras from a modern point of view. In paticular, I will explain how ideas from homotopy theory can be used to answer classical questions like: when does a projective module of rank r split as the sum of a module of rank r-1 and a free module of rank 1?
