Title:Detecting the K-theory of surface groups using quasi-representations
Seminar:Noncommutative Geometry Seminar
Speaker:José Carrión, Penn State
Abstract:
We discuss how almost-multiplicative maps ("quasi-representations") of a group may be used to study associated K-theory groups. We focus on fundamental groups of orientable surfaces, where explicit computations can be carried out. This is based on joint work with Marius Dadarlat.
