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.
