Logic and Algorithms in Group Theory

Trimester Program

September 3 - December 20, 2018

Organizers: André Nies, Eamonn O'Brien, Katrin Tent

Mathematical logic and algorithmic thinking have a strong impact on present-day group theory. Examples include the model theory of free groups, the algebraicity conjecture for groups of finite Morley rank, decidability questions, classification of p-groups, and Burnside type questions. The program aims at developing and connecting the two approaches.
