MA 234: Metric Geometry of Spaces and Groups

Credits: 3:0

Pre-requisites :

  1. A first course in Topology (can be taken concurrently)

Metric geometry is the study of geometric properties such as curvature and dimensions in terms of distances, especially in contexts where the methods of calculus are unavailable, An important instance of this is the study of groups viewed as geometric objects, which constitutes the field of geometric group theory. This course will introduce concepts, examples and basic results of Metric Geometry and Geometric Group theory.
