Counting a few things in groups

Tuesday Seminar

by Andrew Rechnitzer

Institution: University of British Columbia
Date: Tue 12th March 2013
Time: 1:00 PM
Location: Room 215

Abstract: I will talk about a few simple counting problems that arise
in the study of finitely generated groups. These problems are very
simple to state and a few are even quite simple to solve. However most
remain stubbornly unsolved and lie at the heart of some very open and
active problems in group theory.
