Lie Groups, Representations and Discrete Mathematics Workshop

CMI/IAS Workshop on Lie Groups, Represenations and Discrete Mathematics

November 14 - 18, 2005


Avi Wigderson, IAS
Alexander Lubotzky, IAS
David Ellwood, CMI

An educational workshop with several lecture series on:

  1. Expanders in computer science and discrete mathematics.
  2. Property tau and its applications in 3-dimensional hyperbolic geometry.
  3. The combinatorics of finite simple groups: expansion, diameter, girth and connections with sum-product results on finite fields.
  4. Harmonic analysis on buildings and representation theory of p-adic groups.
  5. Ramanujan graphs and Ramanujan complexes, higher dimensional laplacians.
