Original Announcement

This workshop will be devoted to understanding Thompson's group from many different viewpoints, and approaching some open questions about the group. This workshop will bring together researchers in group theory, category theory and dynamics for a joint approach towards Thompson's group. We hope especially to facilitate communication between researchers in these differing fields who may view Thomspson's group in quite different ways. Exploring the connections between these viewpoints will lead to new and innovative approaches to some open problems concerning this group.
