by Craig Hodgson


Institution: Department of Mathematics and Statistics, The University of Melbourne
Date: Thu 2nd September 2004
Time: 2:15 PM
Location: Room 213, Richard Berry Building

and give an introduction to Teichmuller space and its parametrization using
Fenchel-Nielsen coordinates. Little background in hyperbolic geometry will be
assumed.
