Jean-Morlet Chair Whole Semester on Geometry, Topology, and Group Theory in Dimension 3 (Genevieve Walsh and Luisa Paoluzzi)
01 Feb 2018 - 31 Jul 2018 • CIRM Luminy, France
This semester of the Jean-Morlet Chair will feature several events. Firstly, a large conference focusing on the structure of 3-manifold groups, as well as on structures of groups inspired by structures on 3-manifolds?such as PD(3) groups, relatively hyperbolic groups, and building. Secondly, a research school for PhD students and recent post-docs, centering on current research in 3-Manifolds and Geometric Group Theory, and looking at the interplay between the two topics. Thirdly, a medium-size workshop centering on extremely current topics and taking into account Cannon's conjecture and related conjectures, the relation to QIs, CAT(0) boundaries, boundaries of hyperbolic buildings, relatively hyperbolic groups, and rigidity. Masterclasses for local students and Research in Pairs events will also be held during the semester.

Master class on groups and geometries
21 Jan 2019 - 25 Jan 2019 • Marseille, France
The scientific objective of this Master Class project « Groups and Geometries » at CIRM is to allow master students and PhD students to discover and develop their knowledge of several aspects of geometric group theory, through 5 mini-courses. Geometric group theory is the general framework to study the interplay between groups and the geometric spaces they act on.

IHES summer school on aspects of geometric group theory
08 Jul 2019 - 19 Jul 2019 • Bures-sur-Yvette, France
A group is a mathematical object encoding natural notions of symmetries and transformations. Geometric group theory is an area in mathematics devoted to the study of discrete groups by exploring connections between algebraic properties of such groups and topological and geometric properties of spaces on which these groups act.

As a distinct area, geometric group theory is relatively new, and became an identifiable branch of mathematics in the early 1990's. Geometric group theory closely interacts with low-dimensional topology, hyperbolic geometry, Lie groups and homogeneous spaces, algebraic topology, computational group theory, and differential geometry. There are also substantial connections with complexity theory, mathematical logic, dynamical systems, probability theory, K-theory, and other areas of mathematics.

This is an IHES Summer School, organized in partnership with the Clay Mathematical Institute, and the support of the Société Générale, the FMJH, the IUF, the ANR GAMME, the project Jeunes Géomètres and the ERC.
