The GL(2,R) action on moduli spaces of translation surfaces

Introductory Workshop: Dynamics on Moduli Spaces of Geometric Structures January 20, 2015 - January 23, 2015

January 23, 2015 (11:00 AM PST - 12:00 PM PST)
Speaker(s): Alexander Wright (Stanford University)
Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium
Primary Mathematics Subject Classification No Primary AMS MSC
Secondary Mathematics Subject Classification No Secondary AMS MSC



This three lecture mini-course will assume no prior background. The first lecture will introduce translation surfaces and their moduli. The second lecture will discuss the GL(2,R) action on these moduli spaces, and the connection to dynamical problems on translation surfaces. The third lecture will discuss orbit closures for the GL(2,R) action.
