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.

If you are a first-time participant please visit the technical advice page.

Abstract:

The Khukhro--Makarenko theorem says that, if a group has a finite-index subgroup satisfying a multilinear commutator identity (e.g., a nilpotent or solvable subgroup), than the group also has a characteristic finite-index subgroup with the same identity.

It appears that similar facts are valid for algebras (over fields) and even graphs and other structures. I shall talk about a general theorem (due to me and M. V. Milentyeva) that implies many known and new corollaries on groups, algebras, graphs, hypergraphs, and so on.

For instance, I shall deduce a graph-theoretic analogue of the Khukhro--Makarenko theorem, where the role of a multilinear identity is played by the planarity of a graph.
