Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This lecture course serves as a first introduction to coarse geometry. We will study large-scale geometric concepts common to metric spaces as well as discrete groups.
Among others, the following topics provide the main core of the course:
Large scale geometry of metric spaces.
Abstract coarse structure.
Growth and amenability.
Gromov hyperbolicity.
Convergence of metric spaces and asymptotic cones.
