Modern Mathematics Lecture Series Tue. Unramified correspondance and virtual homology of mapping class groups

Time:Tue.,16:00-17:00, Nov.15, 2022

Venue:ID 271 534 5558 Passcode: YMSC

Speaker:Prof. Vladimir Markovic


I shall discuss my recent work showing that the Bogomolov-Tschinkel universality conjecture holds if and only if the mapping class groups of a punctured surface is large (which is essentially the negation of the Ivanov conjecture about the mapping class groups). I will also discuss my recent work with O. Tosic regarding the closely related Putman-Wieland conjecture.

Prizes and Distinctions

Vladimir Markovic has made fundamental contributions to the theory of three-dimensional manifolds, resolving several long-standing problems, among them the proof of the Thurston conjecture concerning immersed almost-geodesic surfaces in closed hyperbolic three-manifolds.

      Modern Mathematics Lecture Series | Dynamics on character varieties and Hodge theory

      AbstractLet X_n be the set of tuples of 2x2 matrices (A_1, A_2, ..., A_n) such that the product A_1...A_n is the identity matrix, and considered up to simultaneous conjugation. On each X_n, there is a very classical and explicit action of the so-called braid group B_n. This is an elementary case of the so-called mapping class group action on the character varieties of surface groups, and was st...
