Mathematics Colloquium

John H. Hubbard

(Cornell University & Aix-Marseille University)

"Parabolic Implosion and Parabolic Blowups"

Date: Mon, December 7, 2015
Time: 17:15
Place: Research II Lecture Hall

Abstract: Both holomorphic dynamical systems and Kleinian groups are discontinuous when elements acquire parabolic fixed points. I will describe the discontinuity, and attempt to construct the space of possible limiting systems.

The colloquium is preceded by tea from 16:45 in the Resnikoff Mathematics Common Room, Research I, 127.
