Topic: Slides for perfectoid talk

Kevin Buzzard (Jan 11 2019 at 17:05):

Patrick told me on Thursday that I should outline what a perfectoid space was. I wasn't at all sure what to say to a room containing computer scientists, but somehow whilst speaking to them and answering questions it became a bit clearer to me what I could say and what level to go for.

So here http://wwwf.imperial.ac.uk/~buzzard/docs/perfectoid.pdf are the notes for my talk; they have the funny property that they were only written after the talk, but hopefully they capture the spirit of what is going on in perhaps a more coherent way than what I said off the top of my head on Thursday.
