### WiSe 22/23: Motivic homotopy theory

**Lectures:** Friday 12-14 M102

**Exercises:** Friday 14-16 M102

Motivic homotopy theory was developed by F. Morel and V. Voevodsky in the late 90s in order to “do homotopy theory” with algebraic varieties. This course will introduce the basic definitions from a modern perspective and present some of the foundational results (such as the purity and localization theorems) that one needs to get started. Time permitting, the stable theory will be introduced, with a view towards the formalism of six operations.
