Topic:

How to get a Calculus named after you

Description:

Anyone can have a theorem but only a select few mathematicians have a Calculus named after them! One such is Tom Goodwillie who constructed a theory analogous to differential calculus for functors from spaces to spaces. I will give an introduction to the Goodwillie Calculus and explain why the identity functor has such an interesting "Taylor series."
