II: Dynamics on moduli spaces of hyperbolic surfaces

Minerva Lectures at Princeton University
Topic:II: Dynamics on moduli spaces of hyperbolic surfaces
Speaker:Maryam Mirzakhani
Affiliation:Stanford University; Member, School of Mathematics
Date:Wednesday, November 11
Time/Room:4:30pm - 5:30pm/McDonnell A02, Princeton University

In the second lecture, I will discuss several natural geometric flows defined on bundles over the moduli spaces of curves. I will describe basic ergodic properties of these flows. I will discuss some open questions and some of the progress made in recent years.
