**Riemann Surfaces, Dynamics and Geometry**

by Curtis McMullen

**Publisher**: Harvard University 2008**Number of pages**: 167

**Description**:

This course will concern the interaction between: hyperbolic geometry in dimensions 2 and 3, the dynamics of iterated rational maps, and the theory of Riemann surfaces and their deformations. Intended for advanced graduate students. Acquaintance with complex analysis, hyperbolic geometry, Lie groups and dynamical systems will be useful.

Finsler geometry generalizes Riemannian geometry in the same sense that Banach spaces generalize Hilbert spaces. The contributors consider issues related to volume, geodesics, curvature, complex differential geometry, and parametrized jet bundles.

These notes on Riemannian geometry use the bases bundle and frame bundle, as in Geometry of Manifolds, to express the geometric structures. It starts with the definition of Riemannian and semi-Riemannian structures on manifolds.

The main topic of these notes is geodesics. Our aim is to give a fairly complete treatment of the foundations of Riemannian geometry and to give global results for Riemannian manifolds which are subject to geometric conditions of various types.
