Homology and p-series of groups


(joint work with Shelly Harvey) I will recall the lower central and derived series of groups and their mod p versions. I will explain why these series are of interest to 3-manifold topologists. I will discuss some new theorems giving homological conditions under which two groups are isomorphic modulo some term of these series and for when two groups have the same pro-p completions.
