Left-orderability and 3-manifold groups: Rothschild Lecture

Presented by: 
Cameron Gordon University of Texas at Austin
Date: 
Friday 30th June 2017 - 15:00 to 16:00
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
The fundamental group is a more or less complete invariant of a 3-dimensional manifold. We will discuss how the purely algebraic question of whether or not this group has a left-invariant total order appears to be related to two other, seemingly quite different, properties of the manifold, one geometric and the other essentially analytic.
