DESCRIPTION:Paul Colognese (Warwick) will be speaking at this research se
minar\, part of the Dynamical Systems and Analysis seminar series. \n\n
Abstract: Translation surfaces can be viewed as a collection of polygons
in the plane\, where each edge is glued to another edge via a translati
on. Such an identification yields a closed surface with a flat metric ex
cept at a finite number of singularities. These singularities may be tho
ught of as points of high negative curvature which motivates us to consi
der which geometrical properties of negatively curved surfaces carry ove
r to translation surfaces. In the first half of this talk I will give an
overview of some initial results which test this analogy. This is joint
work with Mark Pollicott\n\n
