Part of Functor Categories for Groups meeting supported by LMS

I will give an introduction into R. Thompson’s groups, will explain several ways people think about them, and will talk about some of their properties. If time permits I will also introduce an example of a Thompson group with irrational slopes, which has some surprising features (joint work with Burillo and Reeves).

This talk is part of the Algebra and Representation Theory Seminar series.
