On the number and shape of asymptotic cones of semialgebraic groups

12th July 2005

Author: Katrin Tent (Bielefeld)

Abstract

Asymptotic cones are a useful concept in order to study large scale geometric invariants of metric spaces. I will explain the construction of asymptotic cones and will indicate why the number of homeomorphism types of asymptotic cones of a Lie group depends on the continuum hypothesis.
