Pure Maths Colloquium: Moebius geometry on boundaries

Presented by Viktor Schroeder, Universit├Ąt Z├╝rich

22 June 2017 16:00 in CM221

We give a fresh viewpoint of Moebius geometry and show that the boundary at infinity of a hyperbolic space carries a natural Moebius structure. We discuss various cases of the interaction between the geometry of the space and the Moebius geometry of its boundary. We also scetch an approach how the concept of Moebius geometry can be generalized to the Furstenberg boundary of a higher rank symmetric space of noncompact type.
