12:10 Fri 5 May, 2017: Hodge theory on the moduli space of Riemann surfaces

┬áNapier 209 :: Jesse Gell-Redman :: University of Melbourne Abstract… The Hodge theorem on a closed Riemannian manifold identifies the deRham cohomology with the space of harmonic differential forms. Although there are various extensions of the Hodge theorem to singular or complete but non-compact spaces, when there is an identification of L^2 Harmonic forms with […]

Fri 28 Apr, 2017 15:10: Hyperbolic geometry and knots

Engineering South S111 :: A/Prof Jessica Purcell :: Monash University Abstract: It has been known since the early 1980s that the complement of a knot or link decomposes into geometric pieces, and the most common geometry is hyperbolic. However, the connections between hyperbolic geometry and other knot and link invariants are not well-understood. Conjectured connections […]

Fri 28 April 2017 12:10 Geometric limits of knot complements

Napier 209 :: Jessica Purcell :: Monash University Abstract: The complement of a knot often admits a hyperbolic metric: a metric with constant curvature -1. In this talk, we will investigate sequences of hyperbolic knots, and the possible spaces they converge to as a geometric limit. In particular, we show that there exist hyperbolic knots […]
