3-Manifold Seminar: Local and global minimum of Renormalized Volume

Seminar | April 4 | 3:40-5 p.m. | 891 Evans Hall

The renormalized volume $V_R$ is a finite quantity associated to geometrically finite hyperbolic 3-manifolds of infinite volume. In this talk I'll discuss its definition and some properties for acylindrical manifolds, namely local convexity and convergence under geometric limits.
