Algebra Seminar by Gil Goffer

On Wednesday the 23rd of March 2022, Gil Goffer (Weizmann Institute of Science) will be giving an online seminar on her research at 3pm. The details of her talk are as follows:

Title: When are two elements conjugate?

Abstract: understanding the structure of conjugacy classes is essential in the study of a group. We will see how the conjugacy classes of a group can be understood using the group action. We will analyze the conjugacy classes for a variety of interesting examples, including groups acting on trees and group almost acting on trees, following a joint work with Waltraud Lederle. On the way, I will give a short intro to Neretin’s group: the group of almost automorphisms of a regular tree.
