Abstract: 

In equivariant topology, equivariant formality is a desirable property of spaces with group actions. In this talk we will present previous work on, and our recent progress of characterizing equivariant formality of compact homogeneous spaces $G/K$ with isotropy action of $K$. This is joint work with Jeffrey Carlson.
