This book contains carefully revised and expanded versions of eight
courses that were presented at the University of Strasbourg during
two geometry master classes in 2008 and 2009.

The aim of the master classes was to give fifth-year students and
Ph.D. students in mathematics the opportunity to learn new topics that
lead directly to the current research in geometry and topology. The
courses were taught by leading experts. The subjects treated include
hyperbolic geometry, three-manifold topology, representation theory of
fundamental groups of surfaces and of three-manifolds, dynamics on the
hyperbolic plane with applications to number theory, Riemann surfaces,
Teichmüller theory, Lie groups, and asymptotic geometry.

The text is aimed at graduate students and research mathematicians.
It can also be used as a reference book and as a
textbook for short courses on geometry.
