The geometry of CAT(0) spaces

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

August 23, 2016 (09:00 AM PDT - 10:30 AM PDT)
Speaker(s): Ruth Charney (Brandeis University)
Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium
  • geometric group theory

  • hyperbolic group

  • CAT(0) space

Secondary Mathematics Subject Classification No Secondary AMS MSC



The talk will begin with a brief history of CAT(0) geometry, including some long-standing open problems.  Then I will discuss more recent developments and areas of current interest, including the theory of CAT(0) cube complexes and the interplay between CAT(0) geometry and hyperbolic geometry
