The Farrell-Jones conjecture is an important conjecture at the intersection of topology and geometric group theory. It concerns the K- and L-theory of groups and has some interesting corollaries, for example the Borel conjecture. This talk will be a very basic introduction to the statement of the conjecture and some of its implications. It will not be assumed that people are familiar with K- and L-theory.

This talk is part of the Junior Geometry Seminar series.
