Groups & Dynamics Seminar. Chloe Perin (HUJI): Homogeneity of torsion-free hyperbolic groups

A countable group is said to be homogeneous if whenever tuples of elements u, v satisfy the same first-order formulas there is an automorphism of the group sending one to the other. We had previously proved with Rizos Sklinos that free groups are homogeneous, while most surface groups aren't. In a joint work with Ayala Dente-Byron, we extend this to give a complete characterization of torsion-free hyperbolic groups that are homogeneous.
