Topology Seminar

Thursday, 21 February, 2013

SPEAKER:  Mr. Kyle Austin

TITLE:  Svarc Miller Lemma: A Proof By Definition

ABSTRACT:  This purpose of his presentation will be to prove the Svarc-Milnor lemma. I will be following a paper by N. Brodskiy, J. Dydak, and A. Mitra entitled "Svarc-Milnor Lemma: A Proof By Definition". The idea behind the paper is that certain group actions on Metric spaces induce metrics on the groups whose resulting coarse structure can be obtained from the action. Methods of geometric group theory and large scale geometry will be introduced.
