Seminari Teoria de Grups 2015/2016, session 7.

Date: Tuesday April 12th, 2016, 15h.
Place: FME-UPC room 101
Title: "Systems of equations in free groups II".
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.
