Problems in Geometric Group Theory
April 23 to April 27, 2007
American Institute of Mathematics,
Palo Alto, California
and Richard Scott
This workshop will be devoted to
compiling a list of unsolved and partially solved problems in geometric
group theory. The list will be organized into various subfields of
geometric group theory and other fields that have substantial overlap
with geometric group theory. The problems will be annotated with
special cases, relationships among the problems, broader implications,
and progress to date. Invited participants have been asked to draft lists of
important problems within their areas of expertise, and these lists
will be circulated prior to the workshop.
The main goals for the workshop are
- to have general discussions about the significance and importance
of the questions within each subtopic
- to make sure the exposition is accessible to a broad audience
(this includes making sure the notation and terminology is consistent
among the subtopics)
- to find any important omissions or gaps among the problems or
