Algebra Seminar by Emilio Pierro

Charlotte Scott Centre for Algebra

On Wednesday the 17th of February 2021, Emilio Pierro (London School of Economics) will be giving a talk on his research at 1.30pm via Microsoft Teams. The details of his talk are as follows:

Title: Using the Classification of Finite Simple Groups to determine quotients of Aut(F_n) and Mapping Class Groups.

Abstract: This is joint work with Barbara Baumeister and Dawid Kielak. As the title suggests, we show how the CFSG can be used to exclude various (infinite) families of finite simple groups as quotients of SAut(F_n) (n geq 3) and the Mapping Class Group of a surface of genus at least 3.
