Counting elements of Thompson's group F
by Andrew Rechnitzer
Abstract: Richard Thompson's group F is a widely studied group which has provided examples of and counter-examples to a variety of conjectures in group theory. It is also an extremely combinatorially appealing object which has a beautiful description in terms of binary trees.
In this talk I will give a description of some of the combinatorics of the group and mostly talk about some enumeration questions associated with F.
This is work together with Sean Cleary, Murray Elder, Eric Fusy, Buks van Rensburg and Jennifer Taback.
