### The homotopy type of algebraic cobordism categories

## Abstract

In this talk I want to outline the proofs our of main results, i.e. the localisation theorem and the identification of the homotopy type of Grothendieck-Witt theory in terms of K- and L-theory.

Finally, as a small application I want to present a refinement and extension of certain maps relating certain Madsen-Tillmann spectra and orthogonal/symplectic algebraic K-theory spectra of the integers.

All original material is joint work with B.Calmès, E.Dotto, Y.Harpaz, M.Land, K.Moi, D.Nardin, T.Nikolaus and W.Steimle.
