Pure Maths Colloquium: Fibrations by geodesics, spacelike surfaces, and the standard tight contact structure

Presented by Wilhelm Klingenberg, Durham University

29 October 2007 16:15 in CG 91

A regular fibration by geodesics of a three-dimensional space
form is represented by a spacelike surface in four-dimensional
moduli space of geodesics. In the euclidean case, the standard
contact structure is perpendicular to such a fibration. Solemn
undertaking: "I would make it accessible to any math grad student..."
