Title:Geometry and dynamics of some word maps on SL(2, F_q)
Seminar:Algebra and Number Theory Seminar
Speaker:Tatiana Bandman, Bar Ilan, visiting Wayne State
The aim of this talk is to outline a certain geometric approach to group theory that is based on the classical trace map. As one of applications we obtain a characterization of finite solvable groups. Another application deals with the surjectivity of word maps of Engel words on the groups SL(2). This is a report on a joint work with F. Grunewald, B. Kunyavskii, and Sh. Garion.
