Deformations of Hyperbolic Manifolds


Speaker: Anneke Bart, Saint Louis University
Location: 693 Kerr
Start time: Mon, Nov 15 2004, 4:10PM

This talk covers joint work with Kevin Scannell. I will give a general introduction to deformations and infinitesimal deformations of Hyperbolic manifolds. Some examples will be discussed in some detail, including the figure eight knot, a link (a subgroup of PSL(2,O7)), and the Fibonacci knot.
