# Thompson's group T

Does there exist a non trivial homomorphism from Thompson's group T to a linear group?

... where a "linear group" is a group of automorphisms of a finite dimensional vector space, or over a finitely generated module? $\:$ In the latter case, what if any, are the restrictions on the ring of scalars? $\;\;\;$ – Ricky Demer Apr 19 '13 at 4:18
By a linear group, I mean $GL_n(\mathbb{R})$. – Mahdi Teymuri Garakani Apr 19 '13 at 4:31
Actually, instead of ${\mathbb R}$, you can use any field. – Misha Apr 19 '13 at 14:00
Thanks Misha for the comment. – Mahdi Teymuri Garakani Apr 19 '13 at 14:42
