Magic words

at 3pm Friday 17 October in Weatherburn Lecture Theatre.


A word map on a group G is a map sending (g_1,...,g_k) to w(g_1,...,g_k), where w is a fixed word in k variables. For example, the commutator map and power maps are word maps. I shall discuss various questions about word maps, such as surjectivity and distribution of values, with particular emphasis on simple groups.
