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
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:
Marc Burger (ETH Zürich)
Matias Carrasco Piaggio
Misha Gromov (to be confirmed)
Gregory Margulis (Yale University) (to be confirmed)
Nicolas Monod (to be confirmed)
Assaf Naor (NYU Courant)
Pierre Pansu (Université Paris-Sud)
Robert Young (New York University)
Introductory courses for junior participants will be held from May 19th through May 23rd, 2020 at the Centro De Giorgi.
