SUMMARY:Zero-Dimensional Symmetry Seminar\n "Cocycles on trees and piecewise translation action on locally compact groups"\n Dr Thibaut Dumont
LOCATION:MC110, McMullin Building
DESCRIPTION:Zero-Dimensional Symmetry Seminar\nMC110, McMullin Building\n"Cocycles on trees and piecewise translation action on locally compact groups"\nDr Thibaut Dumont\n\nAbstract:\nIn the first part of this seminar, I will present some geometric cocycles associated to trees and ways to compute their norms. Similar construction exists for Euclidean buildings but no satisfactory estimates of the norm is currently known. In the second part, I will discuss some ongoing research with Thibaut Pillon on actions the infinite cyclic group by piecewise translations on locally compact group. Piecewise translation actions have been well studied for finitely generated groups, e.g. by Whyte, and provide positive answers to the von-Neumann-Day problem or the Burnside problem. The generalization to LC-groups was introduced by Schneider. The topic seems to have interesting implications for tdlc-groups

SUMMARY:Zero-Dimensional Symmetry Seminar\n "Hausdorff dimension and normal subgroups of free-like pro-p groups"\n Alejandra Garrido
LOCATION:LG 17McMullin
DESCRIPTION:Zero-Dimensional Symmetry Seminar\nLG 17McMullin\n"Hausdorff dimension and normal subgroups of free-like pro-p groups"\nAlejandra Garrido\n\nAbstract:\nHausdorff dimension has become a standard tool to measure the "size" of fractals in real space. However, it can be defined on any metric space and therefore can be used to measure the "size" of subgroups of, say, pro-p groups (with respect to a chosen metric). This line of investigation was started 20 years ago by Barnea and Shalev, who showed that p-adic analytic groups do not have any "fractal" subgroups, and asked whether this characterises them among finitely generated pro-p groups.\nI will explain what all of this means and report on joint work with Oihana Garaialde and Benjamin Klopsch in which, while trying to solve this problem, we ended up showing an analogue of a theorem of Schreier in the context of pro-p groups of positive rank gradient: any finitely generated infinite normal subgroup of a pro-p group of positive rank gradient is of finite index. I will also explain what "positive rank gradient" means, and why pro-p groups with such a property are "free-like".

SUMMARY:Public Lecture\n "Computational Modelling for Industry"\n Prof. Ian Turner
LOCATION:Hunter Room, Newcastle City Hall
DESCRIPTION:Public Lecture\nHunter Room, Newcastle City Hall\nA public lecture held as part of the CTAC 2018 conference on computational mathematics.\n\n"Computational Modelling for Industry"\nProf. Ian Turner\n\nAbstract:\nThe QUT porous media modelling group has developed a number of fruitful collaborations with \nindustry partners over the last 20 years where large-scale computations were utilised to \ninvestigate and optimise operations. In this lecture I will reflect on the rich experience of \nworking with industry — from commercial research to work integrated learning for final year \nstudents. A pleasing outcome is the impact our research has had on industry practices. A selection \nof our past modelling projects will be reviewed, including:\n\n \n Forecasting the value of a southern pine plantation.\n Drying of lignocellulosic materials.\n Groundwater modelling.\n \n\n I will also provide a brief survey of the computational solution strategies employed\nfor the models.\n\n Brief Biography: Ian Turner is a professor of computational mathematics in the School of \nMathematical Sciences at the Queensland University of Technology. His main research interests are \nin the fields of computational mathematics and numerical analysis, where he has over thirty years \nexperience in solving systems of coupled, nonlinear partial differential equations that govern \nflow in porous media. He has published over 250 research articles in a wide cross section of \njournals spanning science and engineering, and his multidisciplinary research demonstrates a \nstrong interaction with industry. He is also a former Head of School of Mathematical Sciences at \nQUT. Recently, Professor Turner was named in the 2015, 2016 Thomson Reuters and 2017 Clarivate \nAnalytics Web of Science list of Highly Cited Researchers.

SUMMARY:Zero-Dimensional Symmetry Seminar\n "Convexity and generalization of hyperbolicity"\n Mr Davide Spriano
LOCATION:G29McMullin
DESCRIPTION:Zero-Dimensional Symmetry Seminar\nG29McMullin\n"Convexity and generalization of hyperbolicity"\nMr Davide Spriano\n\nAbstract:\nAlmost by definition, the main tool and goal of Geometric Group Theory is to find and exploit correspondences between geometric and algebraic features of groups. Following this philosophy, I will focus on the question: what does it mean for a sub(space/group) to "sit nicely" inside a bigger (space/group)?\nFocusing on groups, for a subgroup H of a group G, possible answers for the above question are when the subgroup H is: quasi-isometrically embedded, undistorted, normal/malnormal, finitely generated, geometrically separated...\n\nMany of the above are equivalent when H is a quasiconvex subgroup of a hyperbolic group G, providing very successful correspondences between geometric and algebraic properties of subgroups.\n\nThe goal of this talk is to review quasiconvexity in hyperbolic spaces and try to generalize several of those features in a broader setting, namely the class of hierarchically hyperbolic groups (HHG). This is a joint work with Hung C. Tran and Jacob Russell.
