The aim of the programme is to bring together specialists in various methods of constructing infinite groups with extreme properties.
Topics include, but are not limited to, geometric, analytic, combinatorial, algorithmic, and computational aspects of the following major classes of infinite groups:

Limits of groups with curvature (e.g. Burnside and Tarski monsters)
Golod-Schafarevich groups
Limit groups in the sense of Sela (questions related to Tarski problem)
Random groups
Infinite Kac-Moody groups
Infinite simple groups
Kähler groups
Thompson's groups

Organizers: Prof. Goulnara Arzhantseva (Vienna) and Prof.  Mark Sapir (Vanderbilt).

On December 13, 2011 at 17h00  Prof. Martin Bridson will give the prestigious Erwin Schrödinger Lecture at the ESI.
