Abstract: I will give an introductory talk about a theory of cobordism for algebraic varieties defined by M. Levine and F. Morel from Quillen's axiomatic perspective. My point of view will be rather concrete with the goal of explaining a new geometric presentation of algebraic cobordism via the simplest normal crossings degenerations. Applications to computations in algebraic geometry will also be discussed. The talk is based on joint work with Levine.
