Title:  Discrete Groups of Affine Transformations

SpeakerGregory Margulis, Yale University

Abstract:  About 40 years ago L.Auslander conjectured that if a discrete group H acts properly by affine transformations on R^n and R^n/H is compact then H is virtually polycyclic. i will talk about the current status of the Auslander conjecture. Another topic to be covered is affine proper actions without the assumption that the quotient space is compact.
