Algebraic topology and algebraic torsors


I will discuss some types of problems where techniques from algebraic topology have led to successful resolutions of open problems in algebraic geometry. Then, I will outline several future directions where better knowledge of the topology of classifying spaces of compact Lie groups could lead to more results in algebra.
