Teichm├╝ller theory and surfaces in 3-manifolds

26 May 2014 - 20 June 2014


The intensive period will last four weeks from 26 May to 20 June 2014. Emphasis will be put on the following topics:

  • Riemann surfaces, hyperbolic surfaces, CP1-structures
  • Geometric structures on Riemann surfaces, representation of surface groups
  • Teichmuller theory, special mappings between surfaces
  • Riemannian and Lorentzian 3-manifolds of constant curvature
  • Surfaces immersed in 3-manifolds, minimal surfaces.

    During weeks I, II and IV there will be mini-courses and research talks. A workshop will take place during the third week (9-13 June). Please also see Planned activities for more detailed information about the programme.

    Some funds are available to offer financial support to a limited number of selected students (up to 20 in shared double rooms) and young researchers (post-docs in studios for two persons). Deadline for application has expired.

    Participants who are applying for financial support are kindly asked to communicate the names and the email addresses of two referees (recommenders) to the following email address:

    Attending participants without support can find relevant information about ACCOMMODATION in Pisa, in the section LODGING inside "Practical information".
