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.   

Eligibility criteria 
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

Minicourse speakers:

  • 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
  • Dani Wise (McGill University) - TBA

Research talks:

  • Vaibhav Gadre (University of Glasgow)
  • Pritam Ghosh (Ashoka University)
  • Sourav Ghosh (Ashoka University)
  • Kuwari Mahanta (IIT Guwahati)
  • Biswajit Nag (Tata Institute of Fundamental Research)

Accommodation will be provided for all non-local participants at our on-campus guest house only.

ICTS is committed to building an environment that is inclusive, non-discriminatory, and welcoming of diverse individuals. We especially encourage the participation of women and other under-represented groups.
