Bernoulli Lecture III - Reflections on relations among reflections   12 June 2014

17:15 - 18:15


Oleg Viro , State University of New York, Stony Brook

An idea to present a classical Lie group of a positive dimension by generators and relations sounds dubious, but happens to be fruitful. The isometry groups of classical geometries admit nice and useful presentations by generators and relations. They are closely related to geometry and allow to make fast and efficient calculations in the groups. In the talk, we will consider simple presentations of a few groups including the isometry groups of Euclidean, hyperbolic and spherical geometries, orthogonal, special orthogonal, spin and pin groups.
