Seminar Dynamics of Polish groups and Model Theory (WS 2015/16)

Prof. Dr. Emmanuel Breuillard
Prof. Dr. Dr. Katrin Tent

Polish groups arise naturally in a number of contexts as infinite permutations groups or automorphism groups of certain natural structures. Non locally compact polish groups require new tools for them to be successfully analysed. This seminar will be an introduction to these groups, their dynamics, their representations and their relations with model theory and combinatorics. The seminar is for everyone with a basic knowledge of group theory. Prerequisites will be kept minimal.



From 29.10. onwards, the seminar will take place every Thursday, 10:30am-12noon, in SR1D. The first talk was on Monday, 19.10.15.
