Pure Maths Colloquium: Discrete groups of automorphisms of complex projective spaces

Presented by Jose Seade, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México

15 October 2012 16:00 in CM221

Classical Kleinian groups are discrete groups of automorphisms of the Riemann sphere, which can be regarded as being the complex projective line CP^1. The study of these type of groups has played for decades a major a role in various areas of mathematics. In this talk we shall discuss how this theory generalizes to discrete groups of automorphisms of the complex projective space CP^2, and more generally of CP^n. This includes the particularly interesting class of discrete groups of holomorphic isometries complex hyperbolic spaces.
