This volume contains the proceedings of the AMS-IMS-SIAM Joint Summer Research Conference on Geometric Group Theory and Computer Science held at Mount Holyoke College (South Hadley, MA). The conference was devoted to computational aspects of geometric group theory, a relatively young area of research which has grown out of an influx of ideas from topology and computer science into combinatorial group theory.
The book reflects recent progress in this interesting new field. Included are articles about insights from computer experiments, applications of formal language theory, decision problems, and complexity problems. There is also a survey of open questions in combinatorial group theory. The volume will interest group theorists, topologists, and experts in automata and language theory.
Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in geometric group theory; theoretical computer scientists.
