Lower central series and Alexander invariants in group extensions
Moduli and Friends seminar

Alexandru Suciu (Northeastern University) — Lower central series and Alexander invariants in group extensions
I will present a study of the lower central series, the Alexander invariants, and the cohomology jump loci of groups occurring as extensions with trivial monodromy in first homology with appropriate coefficients. I will illustrate these concepts with examples arising from the Bestvina-Brady groups associated to right-angled Artin groups and with the Milnor fibrations of complements of hyperplane arrangements.
