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.

"Compactness properties of systems of equations"

Abstract:
We consider systems of equations over groups and semigroups. For any infinite system of equations S one can set the following problems.

  1. Is there a finite subsystem S0 of S, which is equivalent to S?
  2. Solve (a) if S is consistent.
  3. Suppose an equation t = s is satisfied by all solutions of S. Is there a a finite subsystem S0 of S such that t = s is deduced from S0?
    Thus, we are going to talk about the Noetherian property and other close properties. We explain examples (groups      or semigroups), where the problems (a)-(c) are solved positively (or negatively).
