The Farrell-Jones conjecture for free-by-cyclic groups

Jeudi 8 mars 14:00-15:00 - Mladen Bestvina - University of Utah

Résumé : The Farrell-Jones conjecture for a given group is an important conjecture in manifold theory. I will review some of its consequences and will discuss a class of groups for which it is known, for example 3-manifold groups. Finally, I will discuss a proof that free-by-cyclic groups satisfy FJC, answering a question of Lück. This is joint work with Koji Fujiwara and Derrick Wigglesworth.

Lieu : IMO, salle 2L8
