Abstract
<p><span style="font-size: x-small;"><span style="font-size: 10pt;">The theory of equations over groups goes back to the very beginning of group theory and is linked to many deep problems in mathematics, such as the Diophantine problem over rationals. In this talk, we shall survey some of the key results on equations over groups, give an outline of the Makanin-Razborov process (an algorithm for solving equations over free groups) and its connections to other results in group theory and low-dimensional topology. <br /></span></span></p>
