Kock, Joachim

PhD from UFPE, Recife, Brazil (2000); held postdoc positions in Stockholm, Nice and Montréal; professor titular at the UAB since 2009. In his thesis (2000) he used gravitational quantum cohomology à la Witten to solve the characteristic number problem for rational curves in projective space. With Toën (2005) he proved a non-linear version of the Deligne conjecture in homotopical algebra, and with Joyal (2007) he proved Simpson’s conjecture in dimension 3, connecting homotopy theory with higher category theory. He is currently developing the theory of homotopy combinatorics.
