The conjugacy problem for mapping class groups

Mark Bell (Independent)

Monday 11th February, 2019 16:00-17:00 Maths 311B


We will discuss a new polynomial-time solution to the conjugacy problem for the mapping class group of a surface. We will look at tools and techniques for implementing this, in particular for one case that is closely related to the Nielsen realisation problem.
