Title: The Ordered Configuration Space of Open Disks on a Strip and Twisted Algebras (Part I)
Abstract: I will talk about the recent work of Alpert and Manin on the homology groups of the ordered configuration space of open unit disks on an infinite strip of finite width. We will see that for a fixed width w these groups form a twisted (noncommutative) algebra, and begin the set up for the next talk where we will see that this algebra is finitely generated.
