1. Vortrag/Talk (16:15 - 17:00)

Simplicity of automorphism groups of homogeneous structures

Speaker: Katrin Tent

We discuss some general criteria that can be used to show that the automorphism group of a homogeneous structure (such as metric space, right-angled building, graph or hypergraphs) are simple groups or have simple quotients.

2. Vortrag/Talk (17:15 - 18:00)

Compact connected one-dimensional spaces

Speaker: Aleksandra Kwiatkowska

Using a dualization of the Fraisse limit construction from model theory, we show how to construct various (well known as well as new ones) projectively homogeneous compact connected one-dimensional metric spaces. Furthermore, instead of automorphism groups of homogeneous structures, we are interested in homeomorphism groups of projectively homogeneous spaces. I will present recent results on this topic.
