In 80s Weibel observed that K-theory is homotopy invariant on Fp-schemes up to p-torsion. His main tool was the action of the ring Witt vectors on nil-K-groups: NKi(R) = Ker(Ki(R[t]) → Ki(R)). We will revisit the proof and check that the same result holds for all finitary localizing invariants.

Stephen Hladky presents work in collaboration with Margery A. Barrand (both Department of Pharmacology, University of Cambridge).

Abstract: Extravascular fluxes of marker substances and some wastes are sufficiently fast that there is almost certain to be a component of flow augmenting their diffusion in the parenchyma. There have been two major proposals for how this flow is produced and where it is important. The evidence for the classical and glymphatic hypotheses will be reviewed. Extravascular, and in particular perivascular, routes for fluid movement out of the parenchyma to lymphatics may be important in the development of hydrocephalus.

I will explain how motivic homotopy theory can be used to attack problems regarding finite projective modules over smooth affine k-algebras. I will recall in particular the foundational theorem of Morel and Asok-Hoyois-Wendt, and the construction of the Barge-Morel Euler class. Time permitting, I will explain recent progress on Murthy's splitting conjecture.

We combine a systematic approach for deriving general a posteriori
 error estimates for convex minimization problems using convex duality relations with a recently derived generalized Marini formula. The resulting a posteriori error estimates are essentially constant-free and apply to a large class of variational problems including the p-Dirichlet problem, as well as degenerate minimization, obstacle and image de-noising problems.
For the p-Dirichlet problem, the a posteriori error bounds are equivalent to the classical residual type a posteriori error bounds and, hence, reliable and efficient.
