Abstract: 

Solutions to independent systems of equations over groups are shown to exist using (a) the degree theory of self-maps of compact connected Lie groups (Gerstenhaber-Rothaus), (b) mapping problems associated to pairs of CW complexes (Howie), and (c) combinatorial geometric methods involving curvature (many).
