Heegaard splittings of Seifert fibered spaces


Speaker: Jennifer Schultens, UC Davis
Location: 3106 MSB
Start time: Tue, Jan 28 2020, 3:10PM

A Heegaard splitting of a 3-manifold decomposes it into two well understood pieces called handlebodies. We will consider a class of 3-manifolds called Seifert fibered spaces in which such decompositions can be described concretely.
