A quick introduction to the Thompson group

  • Dan Titus Salajan (Universität Leipzig)
A3 02 (Seminar room)


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.
