The Grothendieck ring of stacks
Federico Scavia (UBC)
Abstract: The Grothendieck ring of algebraic stacks was introduced by T. Ekedahl in 2009, following up on work of other authors. It is a generalization of the Grothendieck ring of varieties. For every linear algebraic group $G$, we may consider the class of its classifying stack $BG$ in this ring. Computing the class of $BG$ is related to the famous rationality problem for fields of $G$-invariants (Noether's problem). I will give a brief introduction to the Grothendieck ring of stacks, and then talk about some of my results in this area.
