Sub-Riemannian Geometry and Beyond, III. A gist on Lie groups in Pisa

Partially supported by the Academy of Finland and ERC Starting Grant 713998 GeoMeG

25 May 2020 - 29 May 2020


The conference is the third meeting within prof. Le Donne's ERC project GeoMeG (Geometry of Metric Groups).

The previous editions were

The aim of the meeting is to bring together international researchers working in various areas of mathematics with connections to subriemannian geometry or, more generally, metric geometry.

The idea for the 2020 meeting is to focus as much as possible on the following subjects:

1) large-scale geometry of nilpotent groups (and as the sub-Riemannian geometry appear as asymptotic cone)
2) Heintze groups (= homogeneous negatively curved manifolds) and their boundaries (which are nilpotent groups, possibly equipped with non-smooth distances)
3) geometry of solvable groups or, more generally, the large scale geometry of Lie groups

The tentative list of speakers includes:
