G. Baumslag, Some reflections on some groups of B.H. Neumann

In 1937 Bernhard Neumann proved that there are continuously many non-isomorphic 2-generator groups. This paper is a milestone in the development of group theory, opening up a whole new world to investigate. The object of my talk is to reflect on all of this. The work that I am going to report on here is joint with C.F. Miller III.
