Geometry/Topology Seminar

by Max Neumann-Coto


Institution: National University of Mexico
Date: Mon 10th April 2006
Time: 3:15 PM
Location: Gypsum Theatre (rm 303), ARCHITECTURE BUILDING

Abstract: I will discuss some relations between the lengths of geodesics on a
surface (with different riemannian metrics) and the number of
intersections between them. Analogous results for area-minimizing surfaces
in 3 dimensional manifolds will then be considered.
