Thompson's group at 40 years
January 11 to January 14, 2004
American Institute of Mathematics,
Palo Alto, California
and Jennifer Taback
This workshop will be devoted to
understanding Thompson's group from many different viewpoints,
and approaching some open questions about the group.
This workshop will bring together researchers in group theory,
category theory and dynamics for a joint approach towards Thompson's
group. We hope especially to facilitate communication between
researchers in these differing fields who may view Thomspson's group
in quite different ways. Exploring the connections between these
viewpoints will lead to new and innovative approaches to some open
problems concerning this group.
