DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Anna Wienhard\nhosted by Laszlo ErdÃ¶s\nAbstract: In 1
872 Felix Klein introduced a new approach to view geometry as the study of
symmetries. This approach has been very influential both in mathematics a
s well as in physics. It allows to study different geometric structures in
a unified framework\, and to investigate the interplay between topologica
l manifolds and their geometric realizations in a new way. In the past twe
nty years several new developments led to a revival of these ideas and to
a paradigm shift in the study of discrete symmetry groups acting on spaces
of non-positive curvature. In my talk I will describe the general framewo
rk\, highlight some of the new developments and discuss selected results o
n the geometry and dynamics of such group actions.
