The Groups St Andrews conferences started in 1981 and have grown to be one of the largest group theory conferences on earth. The conferences take place roughly every 4 years; an article about their history can be found here.
Groups St Andrews was the first conference Simon ever attended, a year before he started his first post-doc, so it was a huge honour for him to be invited to give a one hour plenary talk at the Groups St Andrews conference in 2022. Simon spoke about his joint work with Colin Reid on the theory of local action diagrams. A survey article ..read more

Tides are mysterious. Why are there two tides per day? What causes Spring and Neap tides? What are Earth tides? Tides on other bodies in the solar system can lead to moons disintegrating – this is where the rings of Saturn come from. Stars have tides and there are now the amazing, new tidal “Heartbeat Stars”. Tides from some black holes would tear a person apart, so don’t get too close! This AstroCha ..read more

On Wednesday the 15th of March 2023, the Charlotte Centre for Algebra had the pleasure of welcoming Ashot Minasyan (University of Southampton) for a talk entitledInvariable generation for infinite groupsat the joint (hybrid) research seminar of Lincoln University and Lund University.
Abstract: A group G is said to be invariably generated (IG) if it cannot be covered by conjugates of a proper subgroup. This is equivalent to the statement that for every transitive action of G on a set with at least 2 elements, there is element of G acting without fixed points ..read more
