Topology of Infinite dimensional groups

We study the actions of infinite dimensional groups like loop groups and Diffeomorphism groups on certain contractible spaces known as buildings and show how these ideas yield important information on the topology and geometry of the groups.

Refreshments will be served at 2:45 p.m. in the Faculty Lounge, Math Annex (Room 1115).
