Book DetailsContemporary MathematicsVolume: 311; 2002; 343 ppMSC: Primary 11; 14; 30; 32; 37
This volume derives from the second Iberoamerican Congress on Geometry, held in 2001 in Mexico at the Centro de Investigación en Matemáticas A.C., an internationally recognized program of research in pure mathematics. The conference topics were chosen with an eye toward the presentation of new methods, recent results, and the creation of more interconnections between the different research groups working in complex manifolds and hyperbolic geometry. This volume reflects both the unity and the diversity of these subjects.
Researchers around the globe have been working on problems concerning Riemann surfaces, as well as a wide scope of other issues: the theory of Teichmüller spaces, theta functions, algebraic geometry and classical function theory.
Included here are discussions revolving around questions of geometry that are related in one way or another to functions of a complex variable. There are contributors on Riemann surfaces, hyperbolic geometry, Teichmüller spaces, and quasiconformal maps.
Complex geometry has many applications—triangulations of surfaces, combinatorics, ordinary differential equations, complex dynamics, and the geometry of special curves and jacobians, among others. In this book, research mathematicians in complex geometry, hyperbolic geometry and Teichmüller spaces will find a selection of strong papers by international experts.
ReadershipResearch mathematicians and graduate students in complex geometry, hyperbolic geometry and Teichmüller spaces.
