# Laminations and Foliations in Dynamics, Geometry and Topology

Share this page *Edited by *
*Mikhail Lyubich; John W. Milnor; Yair N. Minsky*

This volume is based on a conference held at SUNY, Stony Brook (NY). The
concepts of laminations and foliations appear in a diverse number of fields,
such as topology, geometry, analytic differential equations, holomorphic
dynamics, and renormalization theory. Although these areas have developed deep
relations, each has developed distinct research fields with little interaction
among practitioners. The conference brought together the diverse points of view
of researchers from different areas. This book includes surveys and research
papers reflecting the broad spectrum of themes presented at the event.

Of particular interest are the articles by F. Bonahon, “Geodesic Laminations on
Surfaces”, and D. Gabai, “Three Lectures on Foliations and Laminations on
3-manifolds”, which are based on minicourses that took place during the
conference.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in geometry, topology, and dynamics.
