School of Mathematics & Physics, University of Lincoln
The online seminars “Kourovka Forum” continue their work; see http://mca.nsu.ru/kourovkaforum/ . Evgeny Khukhro is one of the organizers of these seminars.
The next seminar will be held on Thursday, 10 December, at 20:00 Novosibirsk time (=13:00 London time) via ZOOM. Efim Zelmanov (University of California, San Diego) will speak on Growth and complexity functions for basic algebraic structures. The zoom link is https://us02web.zoom.us/j/5578968779
Professor Efim Zelmanov is a Fields Medallist; he is a member of the Advisory Board of the Lincoln School of Mathematics and Physics; he became an Honorary Doctor of Science of University of Lincoln and inaugurated the school in 2016.

Recall that this series of seminars is intended to highlight the most promising research directions in group theory and, more generally, algebra, along with other relevant fields of mathematics. Clear formulations of the problems may help young researchers to focus their efforts and give them a higher chance of achieving outstanding mathematical results.
The seminars are held once in two weeks on Thursdays. The starting time of the seminar will vary depending on the preferences of the speaker, taking into account the geography of the audience.
