Spaces of Negative Curvature

Bernoulli center - EPFL Lausanne - July to December 2005

The Bernoulli Center is a new research institute at the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. There will be a six-month research program entitled "Spaces of Negative Curvature" which will be held at the Bernoulli Center from July to December 2005. The program will be centered around the following topics:
  • Aspects of the geometry and topology of hyperbolic manifolds
  • Systolic and other inequalities
  • Geometry of curve complexes and hyperbolic 3-manifolds

We invite interested people to contact one of the organisers.
