Geometry Seminar

Time: 3:00PM - 4:00PM

Location: BLOC 628

Speaker: Tian Yang, TAMU

Title: Rigidity of hyperbolic cone metrics on triangulated 3-manifolds

Abstract: In this joint work with Feng Luo, we prove that a hyperbolic cone metric on an ideally triangulated compact 3-manifold with boundary consisting of surfaces of negative Euler characteristic is determined by its combinatorial curvature. The proof uses a convex extension of the Legendre transformation of the volume function.

Promotion Talk - Sang Rae Lee

Location: BLOC 605AX

Speaker: Sang Rae Lee, Texas A&M University

Description:
Title: Application Programs for Effective Teaching

Abstract:
Various applications can be used to improve teaching skills. One such example is Geogebra which is interactive geometry, algebra and calculus application. We discuss how Geogebra can be used with examples in Engineering Math class. If time permits we discuss Inkscape which is a graphic editor.
