Master-class in Geometry (Surface group representations, hyperbolic geometry and Teichmüller theory).

Saturday, April 25, 2009 - 10:00pm to Friday, May 1, 2009 - 9:59pm

The Master-class consists of 5 courses of 5 hours each, given by Vladimir Fock,
Frank Herrlich, Juien Marché, Sergei Matveev and Carlo Petronio. The subject is
Geometry and Topology in low dimensions, with particular attention given to
surface group representations, hyperbolic geometry and Teichmüller theory. The
Master-class is addressed to graduate students and researchers in Geometry and
topology. In addition to the courses, there will be a series of survey talks on
geometry and topology in low-dimensions. Graduate students are welcome.
Registration is required, and it is free of charge. It can be done through
