School of Mathematics, University of Bristol
Organisers: Tim Burness (Bristol) and Robert Guralnick (USC)
In recent years, probabilistic methods have been at the heart of many spectacular advances in group theory and related areas, finding a diverse range of applications. This summer school will introduce a wide audience of graduate students and early career researchers to some of the most exciting recent developments. The programme will feature four short courses from world-leading experts in the area, together with tutored problem sessions for participants.
Martin Liebeck (Imperial), Generation properties of finite and algebraic simple groups
Cheryl Praeger (Western Australia), Probabilistic group theory from an algorithmic perspective
Aner Shalev (HUJ), Words, groups and probability
Pham Huu Tiep (Rutgers), Character bounds for finite simple groups
The summer school will also feature guest lectures from Emmanuel Breuillard (Oxford), Ben Green (Oxford) and Colva Roney-Dougal (St Andrews).
Registration closes on 24th February 2023.
Accommodation, lunch and subsistence will be provided, while participants are expected to fund their own travel (limited funds may be available for those unable to secure travel costs from their home institution).
