Topology Seminar (Main Talk): Random subgroups of acylindrical groups

Seminar | April 12 | 4:10-5 p.m. | 3 Evans Hall

 Joseph Maher, CUNY

 Department of Mathematics

We will recall some useful properties of random walks on groups, and introduce acylindrical groups and their hyperbolically embedded subgroups. We will give some motivating examples, show that a random subgroup of an acylindrical group is hyperbolically embedded, and then discuss some applications. This is joint work with Alessandro Sisto.
