A translation surface is a Riemann surface equipped with a metric that
is locally Euclidean away from finitely many points, which are cone
points with angle an integer multiple of \(2 \pi\). This talk will
present connections that translations surfaces have with billiards in
polygons, smooth flows on surfaces and geometric topology.
