Mapping class groups and Out(F_n)

Introductory Workshop: Geometric Group Theory August 22, 2016 - August 26, 2016

August 22, 2016 (09:15 AM PDT - 10:30 AM PDT)
Speaker(s): Mladen Bestvina (University of Utah)
Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium



I am planning to briefly describe these two classes of groups, their most important properties, and spaces on which they act. I will try to explain how these different spaces fit together in a form of a dictionary relating the two theories. I will finish by listing some of the outstanding problems in the two subjects
