The Department of Mathematical Sciences is delighted to welcome Professor Vladimir Marković FRS to deliver the annual Terry Wall Lecture 2022, which will take place on the 9th of November 2022 at 4pm in the Chadwick-Rotblat Lecture theatre (Chadwick Building). You are warmly invited to participate. Refreshments will be available in the foyer outside the lecture theatre starting at 3:30pm. Wine and nibbles will be served after the lecture.

Professor Marković's talk is entitled "The fundamental group in low dimensional geometry and topology".

Abstract: One of the central themes in geometry and topology is the classification of manifolds. As it turns out, the fundamental group plays a key role in understanding the topology of manifolds in low dimensions. It also provides an insight into which canonical geometric structures such manifolds can carry. The first part of the talk will be elementary starting with the definition of the fundamental and homology groups and basic examples of surfaces and 3-manifolds.
