Teichmüller Space, Polygonal Billiard, Interval Exchanges
13 – 17, 2017

Dynamics in Teichmüller spaces is a subject that goes back to the work
of Thurston. For the past fifteen years, this field has grown
considerably, with the contribution of many leading mathematicians.
The outstanding recent work in rigidity of the horocycle flow, due to
Eskin and Mirzakhani, is an absolutely fantastic advance that open new
directions of research. This result was announced in 2012. Part of the
current work uses their ideas to solve problems that were out of reach
until then.

​ »We the organizers of this conference affirm that scientific events must be open to everyone, regardless of race, sex, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, age, pregnancy, immigration status, or any other aspect of identity. We believe that such events must be supportive, inclusive, and safe environments for all participants. We believe that all participants are to be treated with dignity and respect. Discrimination and harassment cannot be tolerated. We are committed to ensuring that the conference TEICHMÜLLER SPACE, POLYGONAL BILLIARD, INTERVAL EXCHANGES follows these principles.
