Dynamical Sytems Seminar-Hyperbolic Geometry, Dynamics and Continued Fractions.

Title:  Hyperbolic Geometry, Dynamics and Continued Fractions.

 

Speaker: Robbie Robinson, GWU Math

Date and Time: Friday, September 14, 9:00–10:00am

Place:  Rome 771

 

Abstract: I will discuss the relation between regular continued fractions and a tessellation of hyperbolic space corresponding to the action of the modular group. The corresponding hyperbolic surface is a punctured sphere with two cone points. This talk will follow the paper of Caroline Series in the Math Intelligencer, vol 4, 1982.
