Teichmüller Theory and its Interactions in Mathematics and Physics
This ESF-EMS-ERCOM Conference aims to highlight some of the most important advances in Teichmüller theory. This theory will be considered both from the geometric point of view (Thurston's theory and its ramifications) and from the analytic point of view (the Ahlfors-Bers theory and its ramifications). The relation with physics will also be emphasized.
In addition to specialized talks, there will be several survey talks given by leading experts in the field. Young researchers are particularly encouraged to participate, and graduate students in the field are also welcome.
