Aims, contents and method of the course

Research Seminar: selected topics of current top-level research in geometry and analysis on infinite groups, with applications. The themes vary and include combinatorial, asymptotic, and probabilistic aspects of finite and infinite groups, randomness in graphs and groups, group C*-algebras, low-dimensional topology.
The first hour (15:00–15:45) of every seminar is an introductory lecture explaining basic notions that are going to appear during the second hour (16:00–16:45)—the regular research seminar presenting recent developments.

Assessment and permitted materials

You will receive an individual assignment for (1) writing a manuscript and (2) giving an online oral presentation. These will be on distinct recent research topics. Active participation in the research discussions during the seminar is also required.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The seminar is open to students of all degrees (Bachelor, Master or Ph.D.​). The knowledge of basic concepts in algebra, analysis, and topology is required (examples are groups, vector spaces, linear transformations, fundamental group, group representation, group action, etc.).

Examination topics

Content of the talks.

Reading list

A specific list is provided depending on the research topic.
