Location: Theatre 2, Old Geology building

Abstract: I want to go through the three lectures of Marc Lackenby
recently given in Edinburgh on finite index subgroups of 3-mfd
groups. This includes a treatment of results of Lubotsky for
beginners, growth of numbers of subgroups and mod p homology and
potential applications to the virtual Haken conjecture.
