**MATH 9073. Geometric Group Theory. 3 Credit Hours.**

This semester-long course will survey the rapidly expanding field of geometric group theory, focusing on the role played by negative curvature. We will begin with classical combinatorial techniques used to construct and study infinite discrete groups. After introducing basic concepts in coarse geometry, we will turn our attention to Gromov's notion of hyperbolic groups. In addition to studying geometric, algebraic, and algorithmic properties of these groups, we will keep an eye towards several generalizations of hyperbolicity that have recently played a large role in understanding many geometrically significant groups. As examples, we will also touch on the study of mapping class groups, outer automorphism groups of free groups, and cubical groups.
