This volume contains articles written by the invited speakers and workshop participants from the conference on "Crystallographic Groups and Their Generalizations", held at Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Kortrijk (Belgium). Presented are recent developments and open problems. Topics include the theory of affine structures and polynomial structures, affine Schottky groups and crooked tilings, theory and problems on the geometry of finitely generated solvable groups, flat Lorentz 3-manifolds and Fuchsian groups, filiform Lie algebras, hyperbolic automorphisms and Anosov diffeomorphisms on infra-nilmanifolds, localization theory of virtually nilpotent groups and aspherical spaces, projective varieties, and results on affine appartment systems. Participants delivered high-level research mathematics and a discussion was held forum for new researchers. The survey results and original papers contained in this volume offer a comprehensive view of current developments in the field.


Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in group theory and generalizations, topological groups, and Lie groups.
