Edited by Benson Farb; Richard Hain; Eduard Looijenga
A co-publication of the AMS and IAS/Park City Mathematics Institute
Mapping class groups and moduli spaces of
Riemann surfaces were the topics of the Graduate Summer School at the
2011 IAS/Park City Mathematics Institute. This book presents the nine
different lecture series comprising the summer school, covering a
selection of topics of current interest. The introductory courses
treat mapping class groups and Teichmüller theory. The more advanced
courses cover intersection theory on moduli spaces, the dynamics of
polygonal billiards and moduli spaces, the stable cohomology of
mapping class groups, the structure of Torelli groups, and arithmetic
mapping class groups.
The courses consist of a set of intensive short lectures offered by leaders in the field, designed to introduce students to exciting, current research in mathematics. These lectures do not duplicate standard courses available elsewhere. The book should be a valuable resource for graduate students and researchers interested in the topology, geometry and dynamics of moduli spaces of Riemann surfaces and related topics.
Titles in this series are co-published with the Institute for Advanced Study/Park City Mathematics Institute. Members of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) receive a 20% discount from list price.
