Joint Mathematics and Physics Colloquium: “Self-Similar Groups – An Introduction”


Place: Namm 703 Thursday March 26, 2015 12:45 p.m. Presented by Prof. Benjamin Steinberg Faculty and students are welcome. Light refreshments will be served. Self-similar groups are groups of automorphisms of a regular rooted-tree that reflect the self-symmetry, or fractal nature, of the tree. They are deeply connected to the theory of finite state machines
