Dates
31 Mar 2016 - 09 Apr 2016

workshop — Geometry of groups in Montevideo
ID
777983
Dates
11 Apr 2016 - 15 Apr 2016
Location
Montevideo, Uruguay
Abstract
The major themes of the workshop include geometric group theory and the study of representations of hyperbolic groups into semi-simple Lie groups. These two areas of research have had a fruitful interplay of ideas in recent years. In particular, the introduction of dynamical techniques into these fields has had powerful consequences.

Early career participants will also have the opportunity to attend an introductory CIMPA school on Hyperbolic Groups and their Representations which will take place in Piriapolis, Uruguay the preceding week.

The workshop consits of 3 minicourses and several lectures.

ICERM Workshop: Effective and Algorithmic Methods in Hyperbolic Geometry and Free Groups
ID
749620
Dates
16 May 2016 - 20 May 2016
Location
Providence, United States
Abstract
The recent proof of Thurston's virtual fibering conjecture brought together tools at the forefront of geometric group theory, dynamics, and hyperbolic geometry. We still lack, however, an effective or constructive understanding of three-dimensional hyperbolic geometry, and more generally, 3-manifold topology. For example, a closed hyperbolic 3-manifold admits a finite cover which fibers over the circle, but can one construct such a cover from a presentation of the fundamental group? Can one implement an algorithm -- perhaps with the help of preexisting software such as SnapPea -- to obtain such a cover? While much work remains, both computation and theory have progressed. Fast algorithms have been developed for running computations in the mapping class group and other finitely generated groups, as well as for recognizing certain types 3-manifolds and knot and link complements up to homeomorphism. These have been supplemented by a new wave of constructive theorems which explicitly relate the algebra of the fundamental group of a hyperbolic 3-manifold to its geometry, and to the geometry of various simplicial complexes, such as the curve complex. This ICERM workshop will focus on such advances, as well as on the development of new algorithms and extension of algorithmic techniques to the study of free groups. The workshop aims to bring together researchers from a broad range of related fields to work towards a more effective and quantitative understanding of 3-manifold topology, geometric group theory, and hyperbolic geometry.

Groups Acting on CAT(0) Spaces
ID
748478
Dates
27 Sep 2016 - 30 Sep 2016
Location
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Abstract
The theme of the workshop is algebraic, geometric and analytical aspects of groups that act by isometries on spaces of non-positive curvature known as CAT(0) spaces. The world of CAT(0) spaces includes classical spaces such as symmetric spaces and buildings, as well as more avant-garde arrivals, such as CAT(0) cube complex. The workshop will bring together researchers studying various aspects of such groups and spaces to discuss recent developments and chart new directions in the field.
