Algebra Seminar by Gunnar Traustason

On Wednesday the 26th of June 2019, Gunnar Traustason (University of Bath) will give a seminar at the Charlotte Scott Centre for Algebra. He will be with us from the day before, when he will act as external examiner in the PhD viva of Valentina Iusa.


Gunnar’s talk will be at 9:30am in INB3305.

Title: Powerfully nilpotent groups.

Abstract: In this talk we will introduce a special subclass of powerful p-groups that we call powerfully nilpotent groups and are p-groups that possess a central series of a special kind. We will describe some structure theory and discuss ‘classification’ in terms of an ancestry tree and powerful coclass.
