Topology Seminar (Introductory Talk): Acylindrically hyperbolic groups

Seminar | August 30 | 2-3 p.m. | 740 Evans Hall

 Carolyn Abbott, UC Berkeley

 Department of Mathematics

I will first give an introduction to some basic concepts in geometric groups theory, including Cayley graphs, hyperbolic spaces, and quasi-isometries. Then I will define an acylindrical action and an acylindrically hyperbolic group, focusing on examples.
