Notes of Arindam Biswas’ informal Cambridge lecture 28022017
Spectral gaps for 1. Context Goal: produce expanders. These will be Cayley graphs of finite quotients of a group, , which does not have property (T). Therefore, the method is new. Lubotsky had pointed out that, prior to BourgainGamburd’s work, … Continue reading

Coarse spaces associated to dynamics and spectral gaps As an incentive for a working seminar, I informally survey papers by Roe, DrutuNowak, Vigolo, BenoistDe SaxcĂ© (+ Sawicki). Goal: understand ways of encoding dynamical properties of group actions in a coarse … Continue reading
Notes of Eric Swenson’s Cambridge lecture 222017
Infinite torsion subgroups of groups Question. Let act geometrically on a proper space. Can have an infinite torsion subgroup ? Expected answer is no. Known. For cube complexes, Wise and Sageev show that a torsion group fixes a point (eventually … Continue reading
