Algebraic Geometry Seminar

Prismatic cohomology is a cohomology theory in p-adic geometry that was developed recently (in joint works with Morrow and Scholze). I'll give a high level overview of what this theory was designed to accomplish, and spend the rest of talk explaining a few concrete applications (to algebraic geometry, commutative algebra, and, time permitting, algebraic topology).
