The organizing center of our mathematical program is
Thurston's Theorem, which is a cornerstone of Holomorphic Dynamics. This
result, now a generation old, gives necessary and suffficient conditions for
the realization of combinatorial models as rational maps. The underlying ideas
have connections with a number of related areas such as Teichmuller Theory. The
insights continue to produce new, sometimes unexpected applications. The
conference program includes minicourses devoted to presentation of recent research in familiar directions, and
also some new ones. These minicourses will provide self-contained, yet interconnected
introductions to the relevant background material about quasiconformal mappings
and quadratic differentials, with applications to Transversality and Surgery.
This portion of the program will serve as a foundation for additional talks on
related topics of current research. Overall, we aim to also provide students,
and others, new to the subject a well-planned tour organized around this theme.
The workshop is open to anyone with an interest
in holomorphic dynamics. The workshop is a continuation of the long series of
autumn workshops in holomorphic dynamics, but it is considerably larger.
To register send an email to lunde at ruc.dk with subject line “Holomorphic
Dynamics” and containing your name address and email address.
The lectures of the workshop will take place at
Roskilde University. Accomodation will be at
Hotel Rossini, Gl. Jernbanevej 27, 2500 Valby, Danmark www.rossini.dk. We have a special conference arrangement with Rossini, Rooms are
single/double 565/740 pr night, this includes breakfast and free internet
From Hotel Rosini to Roskilde University
there is public transportation by frequent train (train travel time 22 min).
To be in time for the morning lecture you should board one of the trains
8:41 or 8:44 at Valby st.
The scientific program opens on Monday
September 27 at 9.30.
The scientific program closes on Friday October
1 at 18.00.
The workshop and ph.d. course is co-funded by CODY, the Research
Training Network Conformal
Structures and Dynamics and the Danish Natural Science Research Council through
the grant Complex Methods in Dynamical Systems and Special Functions.
