William Rowan Hamilton
and Topology Workshop is an annual directed workshop held at the
Hamilton Mathematics Institute (HMI), Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. This year the workshop is
expanding to include a two-day mini-course to be
held prior to the workshop conference.
be a two-day mini-course on Teichmüller Theory held at the HMI on
August 30-31. The mini-course will be given by Jeff Brock and Howard
Masur and is aimed at junior
researchers. The mini-course will give an
introduction to Teichmüller
with a view to providing background for the workshop lecture series.
Participants interested in attending the mini-course should
register online for funding to attend both the mini-course and lecture
There will be a three-day lecture series held on September 1-3 at the
HMI. The lecture series will consist of lectures and discussion
the topic of The
Geometry and Dynamics of
Teichmüller Spaces to discuss recent advances in the field
and propose future directions of study.
The goal of the William Rowan Hamilton
Geometry and Topology
Workshop is to provide a forum in which the international
geometry and topology community can meet annually with its European
counterpart to discuss topics of an interdisciplinary nature. A major
anticipated outcome of these annual workshops is the determination of
future research directions, and the generation of a list of open
problems in the topics of focus. The workshop has a permanent
website at http://www.hamilton.tcd.ie/events/gt/gt.htm/,
will be posted. Furthermore, the HMI intends to have a
preprint series, whereby hard copies of the workshop results can be
disseminated to research institutions worldwide.
Boston College, the Hamilton Mathematics
Institute and the National Science Foundation, have
grants to co-sponsor this event as part of
their commitment to fostering ties between the US scientific community
and the European scientific community.
