INFINITE ALGEBRAS
 We will discuss some recent advances in the classification of
  infinite-dimensional (associative, Lie, super) algebras.

Room 233, Amado  Mathematics Building

Free pro-P groups and polynomial identities.

 It is an old problem whether the free pro-p group is linear.
  This problem is related to the theory of algebras with polynomial
 identities and, surprisingly, to Lie algebras graded by root systems.

Towards a Geometric Ring Theory

 There is considerable interest in developing a ring-theoretic

analogue of geometric group theory.

We will review recent attempts in this direction.
