|Geometric Structures on 3-manifolds|
|Topic:||Collapsing hyperbolic structures: from rigidity to flexibility and back|
|Date:||Tuesday, April 5|
|Time/Room:||2:00pm - 3:00pm/S-101|
This talk will be about some phenomena that occur as (singular) hyperbolic structures on 3-manifolds collapse to and transition through other geometric structures. Typically, the collapsed structures are much more flexible than the hyperbolic structures, leading to the question of which structures arise as limits of hyperbolic structures.
