ICTS Program: Groups, Geometry and Dynamics
This program will be organized around the areas of Geometry and Dynamics, which
encompasses a large portion of Group Theory (finite or otherwise) in its
proximity. The program will have two components: (i) Advanced School, Dec 3-12,
2012; (ii) Discussion Meeting, Dec 13 - 16, 2012. The list of topics in the
advanced school includes Lorentzian geometry, Real and Complex Kleinian groups,
Geometry of negatively curved spaces, Arithmetic of hyperbolic manifolds, Flows
on homogeneous spaces, Discrete subgroups of Lie groups. The discussion meeting
will lead to the frontier of current research and trends in the fields
mentioned above. The lectures on the final day of the program will be centered
around the areas which are influenced by Ravi Kulkarni's ideas, and are still
very much active and important in the context of modern mathematics.
The deadline for filling up application form for the program is July 31, 2012.
