Title: Limit Sets and Their Applications
Speaker: Christopher Stover
The purpose of this talk is to discuss various aspects of limit sets. In particular, some basic framework will be laid, followed by a somewhat more in-depth discussion of Curt McMullen's lim software for graphing limit sets of Moebius groups. If time permits, there will be some discussion about possible extensions of lim and applications to foliation theory. The talk will be given with very few techincal details and will be generally accessible to a casual audience.
