Algebra Seminar

Some thoughts on self-similar groups and their algebras

Jacqui Ramagge

Friday September 3, 12:05--12:55pm, Carslaw 175


I recently looked at Nekrashevych's 2009 paper in Crelle on C*-algebras and self-similar groups with some colleagues who would describe themselves as analysts rather than geometers. This led to some very interesting discussions and insights which I will share. This talk will be largely expository, beginning with an introduction to self-similar groups.


After the seminar we will take the speaker to lunch.

See the Algebra Seminar web page for information about other seminars in the series.
