Approximate groups: structure theorem for special classes of groups

Presented by: 
Emmanuel Breuillard
Tuesday 14th March 2017 - 10:00 to 12:00
INI Seminar Room 2
In the first part of the talk, I will recall the general structure theorem for approximate groups and derive a version of Gromov's almost flat manifolds theorem from it. In the second part I will explain how the structure theorem can be improved in two cases: linear groups and fully residually free groups.
