Abstract:

We will consider the problem of determining the finiteness of quotients of T(3,3,3), the triangle group generated by reflections across the sides of an equilateral triangle in the Euclidean plane. The approach will be largely geometric, primarily taking advantage of results from covering space theory to attack the problem. The talk is well-suited for anybody in 532 or 644!
