Geometry and Dynamics Seminar

Tuesdays at 14:00
Research I Seminar Room

The Geometry and Dynamics seminar is a research seminar in Dynamical Systems and Geometry, widely understood, including complex one-dimensional dynamics, hyperbolic geometry, geometric group theory, and ergodic theory. It shares the schedule with the Geometry and Dynamics Mini-Courses.
