Thin Groups and Superstrong Approximation
by Emmanuel Breuillard, Hee Oh (eds.)
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 2014
Number of pages: 362
This is a collection of surveys and primarily expository articles focusing on recent developments concerning various quantitative aspects of 'thin groups'. This book provides a broad panorama of a very active field of mathematics at the boundary between geometry, dynamical systems, number theory, and combinatorics.

A self-contained account of the elementary theory of groupoids and some of its uses in group theory and topology. Category theory appears as a secondary topic whenever it is relevant to the main issue, and its treatment is by no means systematic.

In the present paper, I will discuss some of these connections between group theory and semigroup theory, and I will also discuss some rather surprising contrasts between the theories. I will focus primarily on the theory of inverse semigroups.

The course given by the author in 1992 explains the solution by O. Mathieu of some conjectures in the representation theory of arbitrary semisimple algebraic groups. The conjectures concern filtrations of 'standard' representations.

This book aims at introducing the reader to more advanced treatises and original papers on Groups of finite order. The subject requires for its study only an elementary knowledge of Algebra. I have tried to lighten for him the initial difficulties.
