Lie Groupoids and Geometric Stacks, Part I

Date Thursday, March 28, 2019

This week, we will begin wrapping up the seminar by discussing Lie groupoids: groupoids internal to the category of smooth manifolds. We will also discuss Morita equivalence of Lie groupoids and begin to discuss why stacks are important for studying Lie groupoids in the first place.
