The Ahlfors–Bers Colloquia commemorate the
mathematical legacy of Lars Ahlfors and Lipman Bers. The core of this
legacy lies in the fields of geometric function theory, Teichmüller
theory, hyperbolic geometry, and partial differential
equations. However, the work of Ahlfors and Bers has impacted and
created interactions with many other fields of mathematics, such as
algebraic geometry, dynamical systems, topology, geometric group
theory, mathematical physics, and number theory. Recent years have
seen a flowering of this legacy with an increased interest in their
work.

This current volume contains articles on a wide variety of subjects
that are central to this legacy. These include papers in Kleinian
groups, classical Riemann surface theory, translation surfaces,
algebraic geometry and dynamics. The majority of the papers present
new research, but there are survey articles as well.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in a variety of subjects related to geometric function theory.
