Master Class : Around Thurston-Grothendieck-Teichmüller theories

Friday, May 9, 2014 - 3:00am to Saturday, May 17, 2014 - 10:00am

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 be also 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 Uludağ (Istanbul) and Alexandre Zvonkine (Bordeaux).
There will be some additional research lectures.
