MATH Seminar: “Partial groups and symmetric simplicial sets”, Philip Hackney, 4:00PM April 22 2024 (EN)

You are cordially invited to the Topology Seminar organized by the Department of Mathematics.

Speaker: Philip Hackney (University of Louisiana at Lafayette)

“Partial groups and symmetric simplicial sets”

Abstract: Partial groups are a generalization of groups which allow for the possibility that some n-fold products of elements may be undefined. They were introduced by Chermak to serve in the study of the p-local structure of a finite group. These partial groups may be viewed as certain simplicial sets, or better yet, as certain symmetric simplicial sets. I’ll explain this viewpoint, as well as some implications. I will also touch on the question about which partial groups are higher Segal spaces. This is joint work with Justin Lynd.
