LMS-CMI Research School: Introduction to geometry, dynamics, and moduli in low dimensions

This research school is aimed at post-graduate students and at interested mathematicians, both in the UK and abroad.  It will feature a set of minicourses, offering an introduction to a number of central topics in low-dimensional topology, geometry and dynamics. Each minicourse will be broadly directed towards one of the workshops in the Warwick-EPSRC symposium on Geometric Topology in Low Dimensions, and will present the basic material needed to understand the central objects, ideas, and techniques that will appear there.

There will also be tutorial support for each course, at which attendees will have the opportunity to review the lectures, solve problems and ask questions related to the material presented in the course.

The lectures will be given by Yael Algom-Kfir (Haifa), Tara Brendle (Glasgow), Nathan Dunfield (UIUC), Erwann Lanneau (Grenoble), and Julien Marché (Paris VI).  The TAs will be Stergios Antonakoudis (Cambridge) and Mark Bell (UIUC).
