  1. Member Seminar: Quasi-isometric rigidity of Teichmuller space

    Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium
    Speakers: Howard Masur (University of Chicago)

    Let S be a surface of genus g with n punctures.  Assume 3g-3+n is at least 2.  Let T(S) be the Teichmuller space of S with the Teichmuller metric. The purpose of this talk is to discuss the result that T(S) is quasi-isometrically rigid. I will discuss some background to this result and a few ideas that go into the proof including the notion of coarse differentiation.   This is joint work with Alex Eskin and Kasra Rafi.

  3. Postdoc Seminar I: Dimensions of Discrete Groups

    Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium
    Speakers: Robert Kropholler (University of Oxford)
    I will compare the notions of geometric, CAT(0), CAT(-1) and cubical dimension for discrete groups. I will give examples of groups where these are different and discuss some ideas for future work.

  4. Postdoc Seminar II: An invitation from non-discrete groups

    Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium
    Speakers: David Hume (Université de Paris XI)
    I will present a colloquium-style talk aimed at introducing some classical and more recent developments in the theory of totally disconnected locally compact groups. The goal is to highlight the similarities and differences between the current theory of tdlc groups and the more familiar theory of countable and finitely generated groups, and to inspire more people to take an interest in this rapidly developing genre of geometric group theory.

  6. Member Seminar: Word Equations

    Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium
    Speakers: Zlil Sela (Hebrew University)

    We combine combinatorial and geometric techniques from group theory to study the structure of sets of solutions to systems of equations (varieties) over a free semigroup.

     The Makanin-Razborov diagram that we associate with such a variety can be used to study fragments of the first order theory of a free semigroup, and to start the study of varieties over free associative algebras.
