Title: Computing simplicial volumes
Abstract: Simplicial volume quantifies the number of
singular simplices needed to build a given manifold.
This homotopy invariant first appeared in Gromov's
alternative proof of Mostow rigidity and is related
to Riemannian geometry, geometric group theory, and
measured group theory in various ways.
In this talk, I will survey results on computations
and (non-)computability aspects of simplicial volume
