South England Profinite Groups Meetings

Joint Research Group funded by LMS Scheme 3
Academic Year 2011-12


This page keeps record of the meetings held during the year 2011-12.
Please click here to move to events scheduled for this year.


  • Background: Profinite and asymptotic methods have been successfully applied to general problems of group theory. In addition there are interesting links to number theory, geometry and other areas.
  • Activities: During the academic year 2011-12 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,
    - give 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.
    For UK-based mathematicians with parental duties the LMS has a scheme which allows participants of meetings like ours to apply for a supplementary grant to help covering childcare costs; see here for further information.
  • Organisers: 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).
