Montreal Geometric & Combinatorial Group Theory Seminar
Speaker: Olga Kharlampovich (McGill)
Title: “Reflections on the subject of algebraic extensions of finitely
generated fully residually free groups.”
Date: 3:30pm Wednesday, February 5th.
Room: 920 Burnside
A group G is fully residually free if for any finite number of
non-trivial elements there exists a homomorphism from G to a free group F such that these elements have non-trivial images. I am going to discuss possible approaches to define a notion of an algebraic extension of G.
