DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Anitha Thillaisundaram (Lincoln)\n \nTitle: Maximal
subgroups of Grigorchuk-Gupta-Sidki (GGS-)groups\n \nAbstract: The GGS-
groups were some of the early positive answers to the famous Burnside pr
oblem. These groups act on infinite rooted trees and are easy to describ
e\, plus possess interesting properties. A natural aspect of these group
s to study is their maximal subgroups\, and in particular\, whether thes
e groups have maximal subgroups of infinite index. It was proved by Perv
ova in 2005 that the torsion GGS-groups do not have maximal subgroups of
infinite index. In this talk\, I will consider the remaining non-torsio
n GGS-groups. This is joint work with Dominik Francoeur.\n..............
