Ahlfors-Bers VI

Yale University - October 23-26, 2014

Videos of the plenary talks are now available here.



This conference is the sixth in a series of triennial colloquia devoted to the mathematical legacy of Lars Ahlfors and Lipman Bers. The core heritage is in geometric function theory, quasiconformal mapping, Teichmüller theory and Kleinian groups, hyperbolic manifolds, and partial differential equations including Schramm/Stochastic-Loewner-Evolution/Equations. Today we see the influence of Ahlfors and Bers on algebraic geometry, mathematical physics, dynamics, probability, geometric group theory, number theory and topology.
