Title: Algebraic topology and physics 

Abstract: Recently, there has been a growing interest in the relations between algebraic topology and physics. Algebraic topology is used to classify physical systems, and it can be a very powerful tool to analyze physical problems in purely mathematical ways. In this talk, I explain this idea and some of my related works, where we use generalized cohomology theories and their differential refinements to classification problems of quantum field theories.
