Thurston's work on surfaces

Event Category:
Reading Seminar on Automorphism Groups of Manifolds
Kevin Sackel

In this introductory talk, we will advertise the key points we will cover throughout the semester, including the main intuitive point that a path of constant curvature -1 metrics on a surface of genus >= 2 can degenerate into a transverse measured foliation. We will state the relevant theorems and applications precisely. For the analogous case of a torus (with normalized flat metrics), the situation is simple enough that we will see the main ideas at work.
