These Departmental Seminars are for everyone in Maths. We encourage anyone interested in the subject in general, or in the particular subject of the seminar, to come along. It's a great opportunity to meet people in the Maths Department and join in with our community.

Hyperbolicity of certain cyclically presented groups 

In his 1992 article titled “A funny property of sphere and equations over groups” Klyachko used the car-crash lemma to establish the Kervaire conjecture for torsion-free groups. Inspired by this construction we use ant-lane argument to prove that certain cyclically presented groups are hyperbolic.
