2:30 pm Thursday, September 17, 2009 Current Math Seminar: Harmonic Maps and Teichmüller Spaceby Evelyn Lamb (Rice University) in HB 227- We continue where last week's lecture left off with further explanation of Teichmüller's theorem. We then show the parametrization of Teichmüller space by harmonic maps due to Wolf. We define the representation space of Riemann surfaces, of which Teichmüller space is one component, and discuss a possible extension of Wolf's parametrization to other components of representation space.
