Title: Lattices acting on polyhedral complexes
Speaker: Anne Thomas
Speaker Info: University of Chicago
Brief Description:
Special Note:

Let G be a locally compact topological group. A discrete subgroup Gamma of G is called a lattice if G/Gamma has finite volume. We study lattices in G the automorphism group of a locally finite polyhedral complex. Cases considered include right-angled buildings and Fuchsian buildings, as well as certain non-buildings with links such as the Petersen graph.
