课程描述 Description

In 2015, I defined the notion of groups G_{n}^{k} and formulated the principle: if dynamical systems describe a motion of n particles with a nice codimension 1 property then they have topological invariants valued in groups G_{n}^{k}. I will treat both topological properties (which topological spaces can be studied in this way) and algebraic(word problem, conjugacy problem, relation to braid groups, Coxeter groups and other groups).
In the second part of the course, I will define similar groups \Gamma_{n}^{k} which origninate from triangulations of manifolds and define the manifold of triangulations for each smooth manifold. I will also define the braid group for arbitrary manifold and study its properties.
