**Norm residue isomorphism theorem seminar**

The goal of this seminar is to understand (some portion of) the proof of the norm residue isomorphism theorem by Voevodsky, Rost, Suslin, Weibel, Haesemeyer, and others. Since the proof is quite complicated we will sketch some parts of the proof of the existence of Rost varieties.

10:00-11:30 AM Tuesdays, room 622 in the math building.
