The JSJ decomposition of 3-manifoldsGeometry/Topology
|Speaker: ||Peter Scott, University of Michigan|
|Location: ||2112 MSB|
|Start time: ||Thu, Jun 11 2015, 3:10PM|
I will discuss the torus decomposition of 3-manifolds, touching on the full JSJ decomposition if time permits.
I will discuss an approach to the JSJ decomposition which naturally arises from more recent algebraic work by myself and Swarup. But I will be talking about classical ideas in 3-manifold topology, which are not directly related to group theory nor to geometric structures.
