MaPSS: Mathematical Postgraduate Seminar Series: Alex Casella -- Geometric Structures and FG Moduli Space

Dear All, 

We are delighted to present the MaPSS Seminar topic of Monday 19/09; please see the
abstract below.  

**This Semester the Seminar will always run on Monday, at 5:00pm in 535A** 

Following the talk, there will be pizza on offer.  

Speaker: Alex Casella (Sydney University) 

Title: Geometric Structures and FG Moduli Space 

Abstract: The aim of this talk is to introduce the audience to the concept of Geometry
as Geometric Structure.  We will mainly refer to 2--dimensional examples, with
particular focus on Projective Structures.  We will conclude with a famous theorem of
Fock and Goncharov (FG), which parametrises framed convex projective structures with
geodesic boundary on surfaces.  

Supervisors, please encourage your students to attend.
