The geometry of CAT(0) spaces
Introductory Workshop: Geometric Group Theory August 22, 2016 - August 26, 2016
Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium
geometric group theory
negative curvature manifolds
coarse / fine Gromov geometry
group actions on manifolds
20F65 - Geometric group theory [See also 05C25, 20E08, 57Mxx]
20F34 - Fundamental groups and their automorphisms [See also 57M05, 57Sxx]
The talk will begin with a brief history of CAT(0) geometry, including some long-standing open problems. Then I will discuss more recent developments and areas of current interest, including the theory of CAT(0) cube complexes and the interplay between CAT(0) geometry and hyperbolic geometry
