Title: The OTHER polynomial functors

Abstract: Last week, we learned about polynomial functors from David Spivak. This week, I will talk about a different kind of polynomial functors – those arising in homotopy theory and algebra. In this talk, I will give three different definitions of what it means to be a polynomial degree n functor in the homotopy theoretic sense. I will then open the floor to questions, with an eye towards comparing to the polynomial functors that David Spivak presented.
