**Date & Time:** Monday, January 20, 2014, 15:30-17:30.

**Venue:** Room 216

**Speaker:** A. R. Shastri, IIT Bombay

**Title:** Topology of *G/T*

**Abstract:** In the previous talk we have used Cartan's theorem that the conjugates of
maximal torus cover the entire of *G*. We shall give a topological proof of
this fact and discuss some other topological aspects of the flag manifold
*G/T*.
