Translation surfaces and their connections

February 23, 2022
3:00 pm    ONLINE


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.
