Month: May 2014
Date: May 9--17
Name: Master-class: Around Thurston-Grothendieck-Teichmüller Theories
Location: University of Strasbourg, Strasbourg, France.
The master-class is oriented to graduate and Ph.D. students and post-docs. Confirmed researchers are also welcome. The aim of this master class is to give an introduction to hyperbolic geometry, Riemann surfaces and Teichmüller spaces as these appear in the works of Thurston, Grothendieck and Teichmüller, and to show the connections between the various theories. There will also be a course on the dynamical/probabilistic aspects of hyperbolic geometry. Seven 5-hour courses will be given by: Norbert A'Campo (Basel), Louis Funar (Grenoble), Jacques Franchi (Strasbourg), Hugo Parlier (Grenoble), Gabriela Schmithüsen (Karlsruhe), Muhammed Uludag (Istanbul) and Alexandre Zvonkine (Bordeaux). There will be some additional research lectures. Limited funding for local expenses is available. Graduate and Ph.D. students are welcome. For questions and registration contact the oranizer, A.
