"Geometry and Analysis on Groups" Research Seminar

Time: 2015.06.02, 15:00--17:00
Location: Seminarraum 8, Oskar-Morgenstern-Platz 1, 2.Stock
Title: "Diagram groups and knots."
Speaker: Mark Sapir (Vanderbilt University)
Abstract: During the first hour, I will introduce diagram groups and their main properties (a-T-menability, finiteness conditions, stability under some group theoretic constructions, etc.).

During the second hour I will talk about Jones' subgroup of the R. Thompson group F which encodes all oriented knots and links.
