  • Teichmüller Theory

    <b>Vladimir Fock</b>, Université de Strasbourg, IRMA

    <b>Abstract:</b>

     

    The main aim of the course is to present a combinatorial approach to Teichmüller spaces of complex structures on Riemann surfaces. We will give an explicit coordinate description of this space using hyperbolic geometry and then proceed to its quantization using quantum dilogarithm. We will also discuss relations of Teichmüller spaces to cluster varieties, Dehn invariant and Bloch group, higher Teichmüller spaces. If time permits the relation to integrable systems will also be discussed. Knowledge of these subjects is not assumed. On the contrary, we hope that the course will serve as an introduction to these branches of mathematics.

     

    A significant part of the course can be found in the following articles:

    2. L.Chekhov, V.V.Fock, Quantum Teichmüller space, arXiv:math/9908165
    3.  

    Elementary knowledge of hyperbolic geometry in two and three dimension and of the notion of Poisson structure is recommended. We also recommend to look through the definitions of Weil representation, Dehn invariant and (Liouville) integrable system.

  • Geometric Quantization

    <b>Gijs Tuynman</b>, Université Lille 1

    <b>Abstract:</b>

    In this course I intend to describe the geometric quantization procedure in all its details, starting with prequantization and going from to half-density quantization to half-form quantization. I will try to emphasize the why of all constructions, starting with the initial motivation from physics for this procedure. I will also give explicit formulas that permit to compute examples. Depending upon on time I will sketch most/some of the proofs.

    In my course I will rely upon basic knowledge concerning symplectic mechanics, Lie groups and fibre bundles (but just the basics). The following references contain certainly (infinitely) much more than I will need. In any case, I will recall (if necessary) what I need.
