A conference in honor of Ross Geoghegan's 70th birthday will be held in Columbus, Ohio, June 16th-20th, 2014. The conference, hosted by the Ohio State University, is titled “Topological Methods in Group Theory.”
The conference will honor the numerous mathematical contributions of Ross Geoghegan. Ross was one of the first mathematicians to use topological techniques to study groups. His textbook “Topological methods in group theory” is one of the standard references in the area.
Ross Geoghegan, Bartle Professor of Mathematics at Binghamton Univeristy, has been with the department since 1972.
