Description

This workshop is devoted to various kinds of embeddings of metric spaces into Banach spaces, including biLipschitz embeddings, uniform embeddings, and coarse embeddings, as well as linear embeddings of finite dimensional spaces into low dimensional $ell_p^n$ spaces. There will be an emphasis on the relevance to geometric group theory, and an exploration into the use of metric differentiation theory to effect embeddings.
