Manifolds (spaces that look locally like R^n) are the basic objects of study in topology. In this talk I will describe what is known about their classification. I will mention the different versions of the Poincare conjecture, and also strange phenomena that appear in high dimensions: exotic smooth structures on the same manifold, and manifolds that cannot be triangulated.

This talk is part of the The Archimedeans (CU Mathematical Society) series.
