Topology and Geometric Group Theory Seminar
We will give examples of finitely generated simple groups of orientation preserving homeomorphisms of the real line. We will discuss the other interesting properties some of these examples have. For example, several examples are uniformly simple, some act by homeomorphisms on the circle and some have the property that every element has fixed points.
Justin Moore will give a pre-talk in the MLT 5th floor lounge at 12:20pm.
