April 5
An invitation to cube complexes

Dani Wise - McGill University
Nonpositively curved cube complexes have become central objects of interest in geometric group theory. They have recently played a crucial role in important developments in 3-manifold topology, and in the resolution of long-standing problems from combinatorial group theory.
Modulated by the audience, I will introduce cube complexes and describe some of these developments.
Location: Gibson Hall 400D
