Towards Uniformization of Anosov representations


Speaker: Andy Sanders, Heidelberg University
Location: (Online) Zoom
Start time: Tue, May 12 2020, 1:40PM

Given a convex co-compact subgroup of Mobius transformations acting on the complex projective line, the simultaneous uniformization theorem asserts that this subgroup is uniquely determined by a finite collection of compact Riemann surfaces, obtained as the quotient of the domain of discontinuity by this subgroup. Anosov subgroups are higher rank generalizations of convex co-compact subgroups, and the existence of domains of discontinuity in various flag varieties is now well understood due to the work of Guichard-Wienhard and Kapovich-Leeb-Porti. In this talk, we will discuss a potential route to proving a generalization of the simultaneous uniformization theorem in the Anosov setting, and present some partial results towards this aim. All the ideas we will discuss are joint work with David Dumas.
