Welcome to the First Online Seminar dedicated to Group Theory and Non-Commutative Algebra.

The seminar presents a unique opportunity for mathematicians from around the world to communicate and share their ideas on a regular basis without leaving the office or even home. Participants include faculty and students from US, Canada, Australia, Europe and Russia.

"Branch groups: groups that look like trees"

Click here to enter the meeting room

Abstract:
Groups which act on rooted trees, and branch groups in particular, have provided examples of groups with exotic properties for the last three decades. This and their links to other areas of mathematics such as dynamical systems has made them the object of intense research. Among their properties is that of having a "tree-like" subgroup structure. In the talk, I shall explain what this means and give some applications.
