3-Manifolds and Geometric Group Theory

Du 11 au 15 juin 2018 - ÉCOLE THÉMATIQUE

3-Manifolds and Geometric Group Theory

dans le cadre de la Chaire Jean Morlet
The aim of this one-week school is to bring PhD students and recent post-docs up-to-date on current research happening in Geometric Group Theory and 3-manifolds. We will focus in particular on the interplay between the two topics, where the theory of hyperbolic 3-manifolds is an important influence in the modern theory of hyperbolic groups and their relatives.
The proposed format is 4 mini-courses. Prof. Genevieve Walsh will give 5 morning lectures, and the remaining three speakers will give 3 afternoon lectures each. (2 each day) There will also be 1 afternoon allotted for discussion and a small period for contributed talks on Friday afternoon.
Speakers :
- Ruth Charney (Brandeis University) : “Boundaries of hyperbolic groups and of CAT(0) groups”
- Jason Manning (Cornell University) : “Relatively hyperbolic groups and cube complexes”
- Jessica Purcell (Monash University) : “Structure of hyperbolic manifolds”
- Genevieve Walsh (Tufts University) : “Hyperbolic manifolds vs hyperbolic groups”
