YOUNG GEOMETRIC GROUP THEORY MEETING VI

Mathematical Institute                  Oxford 20-24 March 2017

Contemporary geometric group theory (GGT) encompasses diverse areas of mathematics and the aim of this meeting is to bring world-leading mathematicians in GGT together with doctoral students, post-docs and other young researchers, with mini-courses and open discussions on fundamental topics in the area, and plenary lectures on recent breakthroughs. This follows the format of the recent highly successful sequence of Young Geometric Group Theory (YGGT) meetings, held previously in Israel, Poland, Belgium, Germany and France. There will be 4 mini-courses and 7 plenary talks, alongside extended poster sessions.

·         Goulnara Arzhantseva, Vienna, Non-C* Exact Groups.

·         Emmanuel Breuillard, Muenster, Approximate Groups.

·         Marc Burger, Zurich, Heilbronn lecturer, Geometric structures, compactifications of representation varieties and non-Archimedean geometry.

·         Alan Reid, Texas-Austin, Profinite rigidity in low dimensions.
