Is it possible to give an algebraic description of the set of locally flat discs with boundary a fixed knot K up to isotopy rel boundary? Working in the topological category, this talk will describe progress towards this question assuming some conditions on the discs and on the fundamental group of their complement.

Note the day and location of this seminar are different than usual.
