Title: The Goldman Bracket and Intersection Numbers II
Speaker: Prof. Siddhartha Gadgil IISc
Date: 17 August 2011
Time: 2:00-3:00 p.m.
Venue: Lecture Hall I, Department of Mathematics
I shall give more details of the relation of intersections to hyperbolic geometry and give a sketch of the proof of the main theorem. I shall also outline to the relation of intersection numbers to the so-called Hurwitz equivalence, and hence to smooth 4-manifolds.
