Boundaries of groups

October 10 to October 14, 2016

at the

American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, California

organized by

Jean-Francois Lafont and Genevieve Walsh

Original Announcement

This workshop will focus on understanding boundaries of groups. These compactifications of infinite groups arise in many different ways, and can exhibit different types of structure. Moreover, these boundaries often encode various algebraic and geometric properties of the underlying group. The study of these boundaries form a central theme in modern geometric group theory.

The main topics of the workshop are:

Material from the workshop

A list of participants.

The workshop schedule.

A report on the workshop activities.

A list of open problems.
