Geometric Group Theory and Topology Seminar

Geometric group theory and topology (GGTT) at Tufts includes topics in geometric topology (especially in dimensions 2 and 3) and the geometry of finitely generated groups. Areas of interest include hyperbolicity and metric nonpositive curvature, braids and mapping class groups, lattices and buildings, dynamics of group actions, and asymptotic geometry.

The seminar meets weekly on Tuesdays at 4:30pm unless otherwise noted, in Bromfield-Pearson 101 (BP 101.)
