Lie Group Quantum Mathematics Seminar

Buildings, surfaces and quaternions

Alina Vdovina, Newcastle University

Location:  HILL 705
Date & time: Friday, 01 December 2017 at 12:00PM - 1:00PM

Abstract: Buildings are exciting objects which have geometric, algebraic and number theoretical aspects. We will give elementary
constructions of several classes of buildings as universal covers of finite complexes. Then (as a geometric application) we will show a connection of our results with Gromov's surface subgroup question and (as an arithmetic application) we will give explicit examples of quaternionic lattices.
