Title: Funk and Hilbert geometry: Euclidean, non-Euclidean and timelike
Speaker: Athanase Papadopolous Universite de Strasbourg
Date: 04 February 2016
Venue: LH3 Math Dept IISc

I will present the Funk and Hilbert metrics on convex sets in the setting of Euclidean, non-Euclidean and timelike geometries. I will explain the motivation for studying these metrics and highlight some of their main properties, concerning geodesics, infinitesima structures and isometries.
