### Michael Brown

**Topological K-theory of equivariant singularity categories**

This is joint work with Tobias Dyckerhoff. Topological K-theory of complex-linear dg categories is a notion introduced by Blanc in his recent article "Topological K-theory of complex noncommutative spaces". In this talk, I will discuss a calculation of the topological K-theory of the dg category of graded matrix factorizations associated to a quasi-homogeneous polynomial with complex coefficients in terms of a classical topological invariant of a complex hypersurface singularity: the Milnor fiber and its monodromy.
