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.

"Nielsen equivalence in a class of random groups"

Click here to enter the meeting room

Abstract:
We show that for every n ≥ 2 there exists a torsion-free one-ended word-hyperbolic group G of rank n admitting generating n-tuples and such that the (2n - 1)-tuples


   are not Nielsen-equivalent in G. The group G is produced via a probabilistic construction.
   This is joint work with Ilya Kapovich.
