LMS Summer Graduate Student Meeting 2019

 Registration is closed for this event

This meeting is intended as an introduction to the Society's General Meeting later in the day, All graduate students (and indeed any other mathematicians) are very welcome.


Dr Robert D. Gray (UEA)

Title: Presentations of semigroups, groups and other algebraic structures 

Abstract: Presentations are a fundamental tool for describing algebraic objects as homomorphic images of free objects. In this talk I will give an introduction to the theory of presentations of algebraic structures in terms of generators and relations. I will also say something about some of the key algebraic and computational notions which arise in this context such as residual finiteness and the word problem.
