Abstract: This talk will give an introduction to my work with Steve
Kerckhoff on harmonic deformations of hyperbolic 3-manifolds, and describe
some topological applications. In particular, this work gives a
quantitative version of Thurston's hyperbolic Dehn surgery theorem,
including precise estimates on the changes in volume and core geodesic
length during hyperbolic Dehn filling.
