Groups of dynamical origin

June 3 to June 7, 2024

at the

American Institute of Mathematics, Pasadena, California

organized by

Rostislav Grigorchuk, Constantine Medynets, and Dmytro Savchuk

This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will bring together researchers interested in group theory, dynamical systems, and C*-algebras with interests revolving around topological full groups, groups acting on rooted trees, orbit equivalence theory, automata groups, symbolic and tiling dynamics, and arboreal representations of Galois groups to discuss recent developments in the subject with the focus on ample-like groups, their actions and algebraic properties.

The main topics for the workshop are:

  • The interplay between topological dynamics, group theory, and number theory,
  • Self-Similarity of Groups and Their Actions,
  • Orbit Equivalence Theory of Group Actions.

This event will be run as an AIM-style workshop. Participants will be invited to suggest open problems and questions before the workshop begins, and these will be posted on the workshop website. These include specific problems on which there is hope of making some progress during the workshop, as well as more ambitious problems which may influence the future activity of the field. Lectures at the workshop will be focused on familiarizing the participants with the background material leading up to specific problems, and the schedule will include discussion and parallel working sessions.

The deadline to apply for support to participate in this workshop has passed.
