DESCRIPTION:Date: \n\n2:30pm to 3:30pm\n\n\n\n\nSee also: Events & Semina
rs\, ColloquiumLocation: \n\nManchester Building (Hall 2)\, Hebrew Univers
ity Jerusalem\n\n\nAbstract: Given two permutations A and B which 'almost'
commute\, are they 'close' to permutations A' and B' which really commute
? This can be seen as a question about a property the equation XY=YX.\nStu
dying analogous problems for more general equations (or sets of equations)
leads to the notion of 'locally testable groups' (aka 'stable groups').\n
We will take the opportunity to say something about 'local testability' in
general\, which is an important subject in computer science. We will then
describe some results and methods developed (in a work in progress)\, tog
ether with Alex Lubotzky\, to decide whether various groups are locally te
stable or not.\nThis will bring in some important notions in group theory\
, such as amenability\, Kazhdan's Property (T) and sofic groups.\n\n Expo
