Tea at 4:00 p.m. in front of 102 West Village G


Abstract:   A profinite group is an inverse limit of finite groups. We will discuss algebraic properties of these groups and their relations with combinatorics, number theory and topology.

Here are some directions to Northeastern University. West Village G is shown as No. 25 on the campus map (under the name "West Village Parking Garage;" the map is a little outdated).

There is free parking available for people coming to the Colloquium at Northeastern's visitor parking (Rennaisance Garage). The entrance is from Columbus Avenue. If coming by car, you should park there and take the parking talon. After the lecture, you may pick up the payment coupon from Andrei Zelevinsky.
