Hyperbolicity is a geometric phenomenon observed in several contexts like the sound under water. In the setting of graphs or metric spaces, hyperbolicity can be defined in terms of thinness of triangles. A product of hyperbolic spaces is no longer hyperbolic but retains some features of hyperbolicity, that I shall discuss through the lense of group actions.

Refreshments will be served at 3:30 PM.
