Free group actions on products of spheres
Özgün Ünlü
Bilkent University, Turkey
Özet : In this talk we will discuss the problem of finding group theoretic conditions that characterizes the finite groups which can act freely on a given product of spheres. The study of this problem breaks up into two aspects: (1) Find group theoretic restrictions on finite groups that can act freely on the given product. (2) Construct explicit free actions of finite groups on the given product. I will give a quick overview of the first aspect of this topic. Then I will discuss some recently employed methods of constructing such actions.
