I’m at Young Geometric Group Theory II, the second international meeting of grad students, postdocs, and young faculty in GGT. My new goals for the year, mathematically are:
a) Always ask a question in our small weekly GGT seminar with my advisor and a few grad students
b) Type up something related to each conference I attend
So here’s the first lecture from the four-lecture minicourse that Frederic Haglund is giving us on CAT(0) cube complexes. Remember my blog post on special cube complexes and how that was not so great for non-mathematicians? These are pure notes so they’re really aimed at someone like me: beginning-middle graduate students.
