The area of geometric group theory (GGT) has seen explosive growth in recent times, thanks to a series of important breakthroughs and its connections to diverse areas like geometry, topology, dynamics, analysis, and probability.
This collaborative workshop has two aims: 1) to increase exposure to active areas in geometric group theory for mathematicians in India, and
2) strengthening the existing research network.
The first week consists of minicourses by eminent researchers known for their exposition, while the second week will follow a “research in groups” format with each group being led by a minicourse speaker.
Week 1: PhD students and researchers interested in GGT related areas
Week 2: advanced PhD students and early career mathematicians actively working in GGT related areas
Indira Chatterji (Université Côte d'Azur à Nice) - Property(T) and random walks
François Dahmani (Université Grenoble Alpes) - Automorphisms of free groups of small ranks and their outer conjugacy classes
Kasra Rafi (University of Toronto) - Randomness in groups
Genevieve Walsh (Tufts University) - L^2 homology and applications to geometric group theory
