In joint work with Karl Lorensen and Dawid Kielak, we study an old question of Reinhold Baer: which are the groups such that the integral group ring is Noetherian. We shall see that as well satisfying the maximal condition on subgroups (which Baer knew), they also must be amenable. This then connects the question to some interesting Burnside groups constructed by Ivanov and Olshanskii.
