Title:Generic thinness and freeness in subgroup of SL_n(Z)
Seminar:Dynamical systems seminar
Speaker:Elena Fuchs, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Since the recent progress in expansion in linear groups, thin groups, or groups that are infinite index in their Zariski closure, have become objects of great interest in the context of number theory. In this talk, we delve into the question of whether or not finitely generated subgroups are generically thin or not, where genericity is defined in a Euclidean model. The answer is yes, if the model is chosen appropriately. This is joint work with Igor Rivin.
