NPC - Non-positive curvature group actions and cohomology
Lp-cohomology is a quantitative version of cohomology of topological spaces, well suited for a geometric study of noncompact spaces and groups. It has been used with partial success in connection with problems in high-dimensional topology (Singer's conjecture on the Euler characteristic of aspherical manifolds), low-dimensional topology (Cannon's conjecture on groups whose boundary is a 2-sphere), Riemannian geometry (optimal curvature pinching) and coarse geometry (hyperbolic locally compact groups, coarse embeddings between nilpotent or hyperbolic groups). The course will provide background on these problems and be as self-contained as possible.
