The universal Teichm\"uller space and its geodesics

PDE and Applied Math Seminar

Speaker: Tudor Ratiu, University of Lausanne
Location: 1147 MSB
Start time: Tue, Jan 26 2010, 4:10PM

I will present the universal Teichm\"uller space in both its classical version as well as in the approach of Takhtajan-Teo. The Weil-Petersson metric will be discussed and its geodesics will be presented. Applications to singular solutions and imaging will be presented, time permitting.
