Title: Finiteness properties of subgroups of automorphism groups of free groups
Speaker: Alexandra Pettet
Speaker Info: University of Chicago
Brief Description:
Special Note:

IA_n is the subgroup of Aut(F_n) which acts trivially on the homology of the free group and is thus an analogue for the Torelli subgroup of the mapping class group of a surface. We implement different methods of studying finiteness properties and cohomology of IA_n and its subgroups.
