# Complex Manifolds and Hyperbolic Geometry

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.

#### Readership

Research mathematicians and graduate students in complex geometry, hyperbolic geometry and Teichmüller spaces.
