"Algorithms for the topology of arithmetic groups"

Integer matrix Lie groups \Gamma carry extremely deep arithmetic information.  Topological invariants of \Gamma are particularly interesting.  I will describe an algorithm which, given \Gamma, computes the homology of \Gamma together with the action of certain correspondences on it (Hecke operators).  Joint work with Aurel Page.
