Universes of evenly curved surfaces
Alex Wright - Michigan
We will begin by discussing hyperbolic geometry, and how it can be used to build "evenly curved" metrics on a donut with one point removed. We will then discuss Maryam Mirzakhani's computation of the "size" of the universe of all such metrics (the Weil-Petersson volume of the moduli space of complete hyperbolic metrics on a punctured torus)
