The goal is the proof of a recent result in universal algebra, due to Barto and Kozik: the characterization of finitely generated Taylor varieties in terms of absorbing subalgebras and in terms of cyclic terms.

It is going to place on Tuesdays 17:20, room to be determined,

with accompanying exercises on Tuesdays 15:40, once every two weeks, room to be determined.
