This carefully written textbook provides a rigorous introduction to this rapidly evolving field whose methods have proven to be powerful tools in neighbouring fields such as geometric topology.

Geometric group theory is the study of finitely generated groups via the geometry of their associated Cayley graphs. Geometric group theory is the study of finitely generated groups via the geometry of their associated Cayley graphs.

It turns out that the essence of the geometry of such groups is captured in the key notion of quasi-isometry, a large-scale version of isometry whose invariants include growth types, curvature conditions, Brand: Springer International Publishing.

A complete reference on the subject, the book includes historical and bibliographical notes as well as a discussion of open questions and suggestions for further.

Geometric group theory is an area in mathematics devoted to the study of finitely generated groups via exploring the connections between algebraic properties of such groups and topological and geometric properties of spaces on which these groups act.

Another important idea in geometric group theory is to consider finitely generated groups themselves as geometric objects. This is usually done by studying the Cayley graphs of groups. Geometric Methods for Cohomological Invariants It follows that A0(Gm,H∗) is a free H∗(k)-module on two generators, one in degree 0, the other in degree 1.

In fact, if we write k(Gm) = k(t), it is not diﬃcult to see that the element (t) ∈ H1(k(t)) = k(t)×/(k(t)×)p can be taken as the generator in degree 1. In the last two decades geometric and analytic methods have gained fundamental importance in group theory and have allowed to obtain significant progress in our understanding of groups and the objects on which they act.

They also propelled the resolution of several outstanding problems. Workshop at the Banff International Research Station in Banff, Alberta between Nov 25 and Cohomological methods in geometric group theory.

Geometric and Cohomological Methods in Group Theory (London Math Society Lecture Notes [no], CUP, ). This book is about the interplay between algebraic topology and the theory of infinite discrete groups.

It is a hugely important contribution to the field of topological and geometric group theory, and is bound to become a standard reference in the field. To keep the length reasonable and the focus clear, the author assumes the reader knows or can easily learn the necessary algebra, but wants.

ABSTRACT The investigator studies the use of p-adic analytic techniques in several aspects of arithmetic geometry. One focus is on the p-adic cohomology of algebraic varieties over finite fields, including theoretical questions like the stability of coefficient objects under cohomological operations, and computational problems like the determination of zeta functions of specific curves and.

In mathematics, specifically in homology theory and algebraic topology, cohomology is a general term for a sequence of abelian groups associated to a topological space, often defined from a cochain logy can be viewed as a method of assigning richer algebraic invariants to a space than homology.
