Ergodic Theory & Operator Algebras Seminar

Dan Titus Salajan (Universität Leipzig)
A quick introduction to the Thompson group

We introduce and present the basic facts about the Thompson group, a widely studied object in Geometric group theory. This group was many times used to give new examples of phenomena or counter examples to various conjectures. We also give a number of easy to state open problems. No prerequisites are required to understand this talk.
