Title: Homotopy type and volume of locally symmetric spaces
Speaker: Prof C S Aravinda TIFR Bangalore

Time: 3:30 - 4:30 p.m.
Venue: Lecture Hall I, Department of Mathematics

A conjecture of Gelander states that there is an effective triangulation in a compact deformation retract of a given locally symmetric space, giving linear bounds on the full homotopy type. This talk will explain some of this construction.
