Mathematics Colloquium

Geometric Complexity and Topological Rigidity

Speaker: Guoliang Yu, Texas A&M

Location: Warren Weaver Hall 1302

Date: Monday, April 29, 2013, 3:45 p.m.


I will discuss a notion of geometric complexity for groups and its application to topological rigidity of manifolds.

This is joint work with Erik Guentner and Romain Tessera. This talk should be accessible to non-experts and graduate students.
