Topology on Matrix groups

Speaker : Amit Singh, Senior Research Fellow, Department of Mathematics, IITM

20-08-2018

Abstract :

We shall study topological invariants (compactness, connectedness) of the following Matrix groups: The orthogonal groups O(n). The special orthogonal groups SO(n). The unitary group U(n). The special unitary Group SU(n). We will try to understand a proof of the fact that the general linear group over the real field has exactly two connected components. Metric space and Group action are required.
