Seminar: "Systems of equations in free groups I" (Albert Garreta, Stevens Institute of Technology)

Seminari Teoria de Grups 2015/2016, sessio 6.

Date: Tuesday April 2nd, 2016, 15h
Place: FME-UPC room 101
Title: "Systems of equations in free groups I".

Speaker: Albert Garreta (Stevens Institute of Technology)
Abstract: In 1982 Makanin presented an algorithm that, given a system of equations S in a free group, decides whether S has a solution or not. Since then, several new important results have been obtained by extending his work.
During this series of talks I will explain how the algorithm works and what these results are. If time permits I will also talk about Plandowski's and Jez's new approaches to the subject and their consequences.
