Month: May 2014
Date: May 26--June 20
Name: Teichmüller theory and surfaces in 3-manifolds (Intensive Research Period)
Location: Centro di Ricerca Matematica "Ennio De Giorgi", Piazza dei Cavalieri 7, 56100 Pisa, Italy.
Riemann surfaces, hyperbolic surfaces, CP1-structures. Geometric structures on Riemann surfaces, representation of surface groups. Teichmüller theory, special mappings between surfaces. Riemannian and Lorentzian 3-manifolds of constant curvature. Surfaces immersed in 3-manifolds, minimal surfaces. During weeks I, II, and IV there will be mini-courses, research talks, discussions. An intensive workshop will take place from June 9-13. T. Barbot (Avignon), F. Bonahon (USC), M. Burger (ETHZ), W. Goldman (College Park), A. Goncharov (Yale), J. Kahn (Brown), F. Labourie (Orsay), R. Mazzeo (Stanford) and A. Neitzke (Austin) have accepted to address thematic mini-courses.
S. Kerckhoff (Stanford Univ.), B. Martelli (Univ. di Pisa), J.-M. Schlenker, (Univ. Luxemburg), M. Wolf (Rice Univ.).
For a limited number of selected young researchers and students are available (
