Title: "Cohomology of solvable groups of finite rank."
Speaker: Karl Lorensen (Pennsylvania State University, Altoona)
Abstract: We discuss some new results, obtained partly in collaboration with Peter Kropholler, describing circumstances under which the cohomology of a solvable group of finite rank with coefficients in a module of finite $$\mathbb Z$$-rank is torsion in all dimensions. We also discuss the implications of these results for the structure of a solvable group of finite rank.
