Title: On Intersection of Conjugate Subgroups
Date: Friday, December 2, 2016
Time: 3:30 – 4:30 p.m.
Place: HP 4351 (MacPhail Room), Carleton University
ABSTRACT: We present an algorithm deciding if the intersection of a quasiconvex subgroup of a negatively curved group with a conjugate is infinite. We will give the necessary background and discuss some relevant mathematical history. The talk will be accessible for graduate students.
