Thematic Program on Teichmüller Theory and its Connections to Geometry, Topology and Dynamics
Date: 1 July - 31 December 2018
Location: The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences, Toronto
Event type: Extended Format
Organisers: Jon Chaika (Utah), Alex Eskin (Chicago), Yair Minsky (Yale), Kasra Rafi (Toronto), Jing Tao (Oklahoma), Alex Wright (Stanford)
This program will focus on the breadth of Teichmüller theory, from its historical roots to its many branches and interconnections with established and developing areas of mathematics. The introductory school will sample this breadth. Specific streams and their particular connections will be highlighted in a series of workshops. Throughout the program, the different communities will interact, with care taken to provide support and mentoring for early-career mathematicians, opportunities for research at all levels, and outreach to the broader mathematical community.
