Teichmuller spaces of negatively curved metrics

Time:2022.2.21~5.13 (Tues. /Thurs. ) 9:50-11:25

Venue:近春西楼第一会议室 Conference Room 1





The Teichmuller space of all negatively curved metrics for a high dimensional closed manifold M is defined to be the quotient of the space of all negatively curved metrics on M by the group of all self-diffeomorphisms of M which are homotopic to the identity. Different from the 2 dimensional case, these Teichmuller spaces for higher dimensional manifolds are not contractible in general. This course is aim at introducing the homotopy theory for Teichmuller spaces of negatively curved metrics on high dimensional manifolds and some related open problems.

      Configuration spaces in homotopy theory I

      PrerequisiteAlgebraic TopologyAbstractThis course will discuss configuration spaces from the views of homotopy theory. The course will consist of three parts. In the first part, we will discuss the motivations of studying configuration spaces in homotopy theory, including the configuration space models for iterated loop spaces, little cube operads, and Hopf invariants. In the second part of the...

      Panorama of Geometric structures on surfaces

      IntroductionIn this course, we introduce the general notion of (G,X)-structures on manifolds. After providing the basic results on the topology of surfaces (including the topological classification theorem), we will give a general panorama of (G,X)-structures in dimension two. We will focus on two classes of geometric structures:- metrics with constant curvature (possibly with singularities);- ...
