Pure Maths Colloquium: Subgroups of classical and non-classical Schottky groups

Presented by Jim Anderson, University of Southampton

23 April 2012 16:00 in CM221

Schottky groups are a class of groups of Moebius transformations
uniformizing closed Riemann surfaces. After defining our terms, we will
describe the difference between classical and non-classical Schottky
groups and their connections to a uniformization question for Riemann
surfaces. We will then describe the extent to which subgroups of
classical and non-classical Schottky groups inherit the classicalness (or
not) of the larger group.
