Title: Stable homotopy groups of spheres


This talk is about the stable homotopy groups of spheres from the very beginning and in a more computational point of view. I will try to explain why this subject is interesting and how people in different periods use different tools to attack this problem. If time is enough, I will talk a bit about some recent developments, especially the development of equivariant stable homotopy theory and how it helps us to understand the long standing topic.
