Jaroslav Guričan:
Sofic groups are not locally embeddable into finite Moufang loops

MS Teams (AGT in Bratislava teamscheduled meeting)

We shall show that there exist sofic groups which are not locally embeddable into finite Moufang loops. These groups serve as counterexamples to a problem and two conjectures formulated in the paper M. Vodicka, P. Zlatos: The finite embeddability property for IP loops and local embeddability of groups into finite IP loops, Ars Math. Contemp. 17 (2019), 535--554. .

Due to recent restrictions imposed on us in response to the worsening of the situation with Covid infections in Slovakia, we will switch to distance mode. You will receive an MS Teams link over which you will be able to follow the presentation, ask questions, comment, and possibly even offer some solutions. While it is not better than being personally in the lecture room, it is not a terrible way to keep in touch either. Let us hope that we will soon be able to attend the meetings in person.
