SUMMARY:CARMA: Computational Aspects of Totally Disconnected Locally Compact Groups
DESCRIPTION:Dates: 24–28 October 2022\nVenue: CARMA\, The University of Newcastle (poster)\nWebsite: https://zerodimensional.group/conferences/catdlc/ \nTotally disconnected locally compact (TDLC) groups naturally appear in various branches of mathematics as they capture the structure of symmetries of various mathematical objects\, so it is natural to ask for a way of computing in such groups. Unfortunately\, there is no formal framework for computation in TDLC groups and nor can there be one\, as these groups are uncountable. However\, one can hope to develop a formal framework of approximations analogous to how real numbers can be approximated by rational numbers with arbitrary precision. \n \nLocally\, TDLC groups are profinite\, meaning that they can be understood through sequences of finite groups that increase in size. Computing with larger and larger finite groups would provide more and more precise approximations of local structure of TDLC groups\, using formalisms from numerical analysis. Computational aspects of finite permutation groups have been well-studied and this is a very active area of research. The way the local structure is composed to form the large-scale picture of a TDLC group is not dissimilar to the structure of countable groups\, for which there is also a well-developed theory of computation. \nThe aim of the proposed workshop is to bring together experts from four fields of mathematics: \n\npermutation groups\nalgorithmic group theory\nnumerical analysis\nformal systems and logic\n\nto develop a basis for a framework of computation in TDLC groups and approximation thereof. \nConference organisers\n\nHeiko Dietrich (Monash University)\nMichal Ferov (The University of Newcastle)\nMelissa Lee (The University of Auckland)\nGeorge Willis (The University of Newcastle)\n\nThis workshop is supported by AMSI and AustMS through the AMSI–AustMS Workshop Funding program.
