Agrarian Invariants of Groups

20 May 2021

For a group G and a finite dimensional linear representation σ : G → GLn(D) over a skew field (division ring) D, the agrarian invariants with respect to σ are the homological invariants of G with coefficient module Dn. In this talk I will discuss the relationship between agrarian invariants, L 2 -invariants, Thurston norm and twisted Alexander polynomials. I will also discuss an ongoing work with Dawid Kielak.
