Distinguishing finitely presented groups by their finite quotients

Alan Reid (Rice)

Location:  Hill 705
Date & time: Wednesday, 02 May 2018 at 3:30PM - 4:30PM

Abstract:   To understand a finitely presented group it is natural to explore its finite quotients.  If the groups at hand are residually finite, a natural question is the extent to which group are determined by the totality of their finite quotients.  This talk will discuss recent progress on constructing residually finite groups completely determined by their finite quotients.
