IHP trimester on random walks and asymptotic geometry of groups
The trimester is devoted to asymptotic properties of infinite and big finite groups, in particular, those associated with random walks on these groups. We hope to have a fruitful collaboration covering probabilistic, analytic, algebraic, and geometrical aspects of this subject area as well as their interplay. The non-exhaustive list of topics we are planning to discuss includes:
Long term invited visitors: Miklos Abert, Laurent Bartholdi, Alex Eskin, Rostislav Grigorchuk, Gady Kozma, Steve Lalley, Andrés Navas, Volodymyr Nekrashevych, Narutaka Ozawa, Mark Sapir, Wolfgang Woess.
Open day (journée portes ouvertes): March 19 (organized by Indira Chatterji, Anna Erschler, Vadim Kaimanovich, Laurent Saloff-Coste and Pierre Pansu)
