The sixth meeting was held January 26-27, 2001,at XU.  We read a paper by the British mathematician William Burnside that was influential in the development of group theory at the beginning of the 20th century.  The paper, On an unsettled question in thetheory of discontinuous groups (Quart. J. of Pure and Applied Math. 33 (1902) 230-238), introduced what is now known as the Burnside problem: are all finitely generated torsion groups finite?  For more, see Danny Otero's reportof the meeting.
