Title:  Geometry of groups and rigidity of manifolds

Abstract:  I will explain how certain geometric properties of groups can be used to study rigidity and non-rigidity of manifolds. In particular, I will discuss how a certain secondary invariants can be used to estimate the degree of non-rigidity of manifolds. Parts of the work are joint with Erik Guentner, Romain Tessera, Shmuel Weinberger, and Zhizhang Xie. This talk will be accessible to graduate students.
