A Small Contribution to the Kervaire Conjecture
I will give a quick survey of the known results and methods towards the Kervaire conjecture in combinatorial group theory. Then I will offer a small but pretty result that offers a new paradigm. This is joint work with Andy Ramirez-Côté.
Short Biography: Dani Wise grew up in New York and received his BA from Yeshiva University and his PhD from Princeton (1996). After stimulating postdocs and visiting positions at Berkeley, Cornell, and Brandeis, he moved to McGill in 2001, where he is a James McGill Professor. His primary research agenda has been to explore and promulgate the utility and ubiquity of non-positively curved cubical geometry in group theory and topology. He has received an AMS Veblen Prize, the CRM-Fields-PIMS Prize, a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Lobachevsky Medal, and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of London. Dani Wise is currently on Sabbatical at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel.
Professor Daniel Wise is also giving a Colloquium on Monday 11 March at 16:00 in Lecture Theatre 4, School of Chemistry.
