Groups of Kac-Moody type (ENGLISH)
[ 講演概要 ]
Groups of Kac-Moody type are natural generalizations of Kac-Moody groups over fields in the sense that they have an RGD-system. This is a system of subgroups indexed by the roots of a root system and satisfying certain commutation relations.
Roughly speaking, there is a one-to-one correspondence between groups of Kac-Moody type and Moufang twin buildings. This correspondence was used in the last decade to prove several group theoretic results on RGD-systems and in particular on Kac-
Moody groups over fields.

In my talk I will explain RGD-systems and how they provide twin
buildings in a natural way. I will then present some of the group theoretic applications mentioned above and describe how twin buildings are used as a main tool in their proof.
