Introduction to Garside groups

Vendredi 30 novembre 2007 10:30-11:30 - Krammer Daan - Warwick

Résumé : Garside groups are a recent invention though the first example, the braid group, was already done in 1969 by Garside.
The main properties of Garside groups are strikingly beautiful.
The list of applications is as yet short but is expected to grow. I shall give some examples of Garside groups ; the definition of Garside groups ; their main properties (normal forms and the grid property) ; and I indicate the connection with the linearity of the braid group.
