Topology Seminar (Introductory Talk): Introduction to Teichmuller space

Seminar | August 29 | 2-3 p.m. | 736 Evans Hall

 Department of Mathematics

We introduce Teichmuller space in various respects in terms of conformal structures, hyperbolic structures and representations. We briefly describe natural metrics on Teichmuller space, and useful functions to study the geometry of Teichmuller space. Finally, we introduce energy functional and convexity, plurisubharmonicity of energy functionals.
