Title: Commutativity, Bundles and K-theory I & II
Abstract: 
In these talks we will describe the space of commuting elements in a compact Lie group and how that relates to representations, bundles and homotopy theory. We will provide a number of explicit examples arising from matrix groups.  In particular we will discuss a new cohomology theory constructed from commuting unitary matrices.
