Math.-String seminar

Place: Seminar Room at IPMU Prefab. B, Kashiwa Campus of the University of Tokyo
Speaker: Mikaël Pichot (IPMU)
Title: "Groups of intermediate rank"
Abstract: I will present a class of countablegroups with intermediate rank properties. This allows a rather smooth interpolation between the usual rank 1 and "higher rank" situations. For many of these groups (infinitely many), the Baum-Connes conjecture holds. This is joint work with Sylvain Barre.
