Xiaolei Wu (BINGHAMTON): The Farrell-Jones Conjecture for the Baumslag-Solitar groups (08/07/2014)


The Baumslag-Solitar groups are a particular class of two-generator one-relation groups which have played a surprisingly useful role in combinatorial and geometric group theory. They have provided examples which mark boundaries between different classes of groups and they often provide a test-cases for theories and techniques. In this talk, I will illustrate the ideas behind the proof of the Farrell-Jones Conjecture for them. This is a joint work with F. Thomas Farrell.
