Recognizing 3-manifold groups by their finite quotients
Introductory Workshop: Geometric Group Theory August 22, 2016 - August 26, 2016
Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium
geometric group theory
finitely generated subgroups
finite index subgroups
20F65 - Geometric group theory [See also 05C25, 20E08, 57Mxx]
57M05 - Fundamental group, presentations, free differential calculus
This talk will be focused on the problem of: to what extent can the fundamental groups of compact 3-manifolds be distinguished by the finite quotients of their fundamental groups.
The talk will highlight examples (e.g. the figure eight knot complement) and introduce ideas and techniques used in attacking the problem
