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