Speaker: 
Adam Clay (University of Manitoba)
Location: 
Burnside Hall, Room 1214 (McGill University) (Note the unusual time and place)
Abstract: 

In this talk I will discuss how left-orderings of fundamental groups of knot complements behave with respect to the operation of cabling. This work relates closely to the conjectured relationship between left-orderability of fundamental groups, L-spaces and foliations. In particular, what I will discuss is a left-orderability analogue of some recent L-space results of Sarah Dean Rasmussen.
