Quasi-Abelian Categories in Analytic Geometry

10 March 2016
Jack Kelly

In this talk I will give several perspectives on the role of
quasi-abelian categories in analytic geometry. In particular, I will 
explain why a certain completion of the category of Banach spaces is a
convenient setting for studying sheaves of topological vector spaces on
complex manifolds. Time permitting, I will also argue why this category
may be a good candidate for a functor of points approach to (derived)
analytic geometry.
