Abstract. Controlled algebra is a kind of algebra where you look at free based modules, with a reference map from the basis to a metric space. In the algebra, you then pay attention to "sizes". It turns out that this kind of algebra has a lot of applications in topology, such as relatively easy proofs of the annulus conjecture, cell-like approximation theorems, and various other things. The talk will explain these connections.
