- Background: In recent
years profinite and asymptotic methods have been successfully
applied to general problems of group theory. In addition there
are interesting links to number theory and geometry.
- Activities: During
the academic year 2009-10 we are holding a series of three
meetings in order to
- provide a platform for young
mathematicians from across the south of England to meet and
discuss their research in profinite groups, asymptotic group
theory and related topics,
- get graduate students and
postdoctoral fellows involved by giving them the opportunity to
discuss and possibly present their individual work,
the participants an opportunity to widen their research
horizons and their knowledge base by familiarising themselves
with research adjacent to their own,
- foster and develop
collaborative links both within the group and with selected
experts from the UK and abroad.
- Participants: We
welcome and encourage interested mathematicians at all levels
to join us in our meetings. The Joint Research Group receives
financial support from the London Mathematical Society and has
therefore limited funds to reimburse travel expenses of UK-based
students and young mathematicians. Please contact the
organisers if you wish to apply for such reimbursements.
Corresponding organisers of the Joint Research Group are Benjamin
Klopsch (Royal Holloway, University of London), Nikolay
Nikolov (Imperial College London) and Christopher
Voll (University of Southampton).
