Introduction to Teichmuller Theory and Kleinian Groups August 20, 2007 - August 24, 2007
Registration Deadline: August 17, 2007 almost 7 years ago
To apply for Funding you must register by: May 20, 2007 about 7 years ago
Parent Program: Teichmuller Theory and Kleinian Groups
Organizers Jeff Brock, Richard Canary, Howard Masur, Alan Reid, and Maryam Mirzakhani
Speaker(s) No Speakers Assigned Yet.
Description

This five-day workshop will comprise six three-hour minicourses, run by experts in the field, intended to give a summary of recent results in their various areas of expertise and frame new directions for future research. The mini-courses will attempt to bring participants up-to-date on recent work in the topology and deformation theory of hyperbolic 3-manifolds, dynamics of flows on moduli spaces of translation surfaces, and the geometry of Teichmüller space and the mapping class group, and their various combinatorial models. There will be time in between these mini-courses for substantial discussion and interaction. The minicourses may be supplemented by one-hour talks. Group photo of workshop participants
