Filippo Mazzoli, PMA 12.166: Pleated surfaces for SO(2,n)-maximal representations
Monday, November 28, 2022, 02:00pm - 03:00pm
Since their introduction by Thurston, pleated surfaces have been extensively deployed to study the geometry of hyperbolic 3-manifolds. In this talk we will describe a natural adaptation of this notion for the study of maximal surface group representations inside SO(2,n). Applications of our techniques include: a shear-bend parametrization of the space of quasi-Fuchsian anti-de Sitter manifolds, and a new proof of the convexity of length functions on Teichm?ller space along shear paths (see works of Kerckhoff, Bestvina-Bromberg-Fujiwara-Suoto, Th?ret). This is a joint work with Gabriele Viaggi (Heidelberg University).
