Topological groups seminar

A new website, has been created by mathematicians at MIT as a place to collect online math seminars happening around the world. It already has a lot on it:  39 talks in the next week alone.

Included is a UH-based topological groups seminar organized by Wayne Lewis (and begun in a joint effort with Adolf Mader).

It runs Tuesdays 6-8 AM via Zoom (the link is accessible there). Last Tuesday we had attendees from Switzerland, South Africa, Italy, and the U.S.

Fall 2019

We will begin the Geometric Group Theory seminar again in a couple of weeks. This semester it will take place on Tuesdays at 3pm in Keller 301. If you are interested in attending please email Andrew Sale to be added to the mailing list. We will work up towards a proof of $\delta$-hyperbolicity of the curve complex of a graph, and we hope to make it accessible to grad students, especially those who have had some exposure to GGT. If you have any questions about what we will cover, don’t hesitate to email. Thanks for reading and hope to see you there!
