Learning Seminar on Probabilistic Aspects of the Thompson Monoid

Thursday, March 11, 2021 1:30 pm - 1:30 pm EST (GMT -05:00)

Arundhathi Krishnan, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

This is the second talk in a sequence of learning seminar meetings aimed towards probabilistic aspects of the Thompson monoid. We will follow up on the basic facts about monoids defined by generators and relations that were discussed in the meeting on March 4. (If you are new to the seminar, please send email to Arundhathi, a85krish@uwaterloo.ca, and ask for the pdf file with the description of the March 4 meeting.) We will then move on to a very useful theorem of Ore which shows how, under suitable conditions --satisfied by all of our favourite examples-- a monoid M has a kind of "group of fractions" G that it embeds into.
