Equivariant Quantum Cohomology, Mirror Symmetry, and Symplectic Geometry Workshop, May 16, 2011 – May 20, 2011

Dates: May 16-20, 2011 Location: Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, SUNY Stony BrookOrganizers: Dennis Auroux, Ludmil Katzarkov, Paul Seidel The broad aim of the workshop is to address recent developments involving equivariant structures in mirror symmetry. These developments come from quantum cohomology and symplectic topology, and have further ramifications in representation theory and in […]

The Ehrenpreis Conjecture for Riemann Surfaces and the Surface Subgroup Theorem for Hyperbolic Three Manifolds

There will be a five lecture discussion-exposition of the new technique of Dr. Jeremy Kahn (Stony Brook University) and Dr. Vladimir Morkovic (Warwick) constructing mappings of constant negative curvature surfaces into certain targets, which are locally almost isometries. Participants Dennis Sullivan (Stony Brook) Scott Wolpert (Maryland) Ara Basmajian (CUNY) Sarah Koch (Harvard) Vaibhav Gadre (Harvard) […]
