Algebra seminar by James Williams

In September 2020, James Williams (University of Bristol) will be visiting the Charlotte Scott Centre for Algebra and giving a talk at 3.00pm in INB3305. The details of his talk are as follows:

Title: Abelian-like properties in p-groups

Abstract: An important idea in the theory of p-groups has been finding families with desirable properties, such as those enjoyed by abelian groups. In this light we consider groups which are ‘powerful’ in the sense of Lubotzky and Mann. We introduce some variants of powerful p-groups and explore some of their most interesting properties.

With the aim of making this talk as accessible as possible, we will begin by recalling some basic properties of p-groups and motivation for studying them.
