Locally compact groups acting on discrete structures - Summer School  06 - 10 July 2020

08:00 - 17:00
Room : GA 3 21

Organisers

Colin Reid, The University of Newcastle, Australia

Stephan Tornier, The University of Newcastle, Australia

George Willis, The University of Newcastle, Australia

This Summer School is intended as an introduction to the main themes of the program, focusing on key topics of the subsequent workshops: automorphism groups of graphs, dynamics on totally disconnected locally compact groups and their relation to self-similar groups, local structure of totally disconnected locally compact groups, and geometry and dynamics.

Speakers at the Summer School include Yves Cornulier (CNRS and Université de Lyon 1) Röggi Möller (University of Iceland), Colin Reid (University of Newcastle, Australia), Zoran Šunić (Hofstra University) and George Willis (University of Newcastle, Australia).

  1. Geometry and dynamics by Yves Cornulier (CNRS and Université de Lyon 1).
  2. Automorphism groups of trees and graphs by Röggi Möller (University of Iceland).
  3. Local structure of totally disconnected locally compact groups by Colin Reid (University of Newcastle, Australia).
  4. Self-similar groups by Zoran Šunić (Hofstra University).
  5. Scale and dynamics on totally disconnected locally compact groups by George Willis (University of Newcastle, Australia).
The school will consist of mini-courses complemented by problem and discussion sessions.

Graduate students (as well as postdocs and others interested) are welcome to register by filling in the above registration form by 30 November 2019.
