Thesis title: Scale multiplicative semigroups of groups acting on trees with almost prescribed local action

Supervisors: Jacqui RAMAGGE , Anne THOMAS

Thesis abstract:

Recent progress in totally disconnected locally compact group theory has been made with the introduction of maximal scale multiplicative semigroups. Evidence seems to indicate that a group’s maximal scale multiplicative semigroups may provide a sound basis from which to construct a geometry for the group. It is unclear how to formalise this construction as there are few examples available. My thesis will focus on one class of examples which extends previous work to a larger class of groups.
