Pure Maths Colloquium: Calculus on nilpotent Lie groups

Presented by Michael Cowling, University of Birmingham

2 June 2008 16:15 in CM 221

This talk is about the development of "differential calculus" on
stratified nilpotent Lie groups; this subject demonstrates a very pretty
interplay of undergraduate multivariable calculus, algebra and geometry.
Several aspects of calculus on the group of $4 \times 4$ upper triangular
unipotent matrices will be analysed to illustrate this claim.
