Seminar: Geometry and Topology


Welcome to the Geometry and Topology seminar of the Florida State University. We meet on Tuesdays, at 3:35 pm in 201 LOV. If you interested in giving a talk feel free to contact me. Available dates for Spring 2017 are: March 7, March 21.

Upcoming Talks (Spring 2017):


  • February 14, 2017: Leona Sparaco (Florida State University)
  • Title: Character Varieties of Some Families of Hyperbolic Link Complements
  • Abstract: Let M be a hyperbolic manifold. The SL2(C) character variety of M is essentially the set of all representations  pi_1(M) --> SL2(C) up to trace equivalence. This algebraic set is connected to geometric properties of the manifold M. In this talk we will look at some properties of the character variety of M when M is a link complement with a non-trivial symmetry.
