Title: Manifolds and symmetry
Abstract: This will be a survey talk about connections between the topology of a manifold and its group of symmetries. I will illustrate this theme by discussing finite group actions on spheres and products of spheres, and infinite discrete groups acting properly discontinuously on products of spheres and Euclidean spaces.
