BMS Professor Igor Rivin from the Temple University (Philadelphia) will teach a BMS Lecture Series on "Hyperbolic Polyhedra".

The lectures will take place on

- 28 October 2011 at 10:15 am at TU, Seminar: Discrete Differential Geometry
- 08 November 2011 at 4:15 pm at TU, Seminar: Discrete Differential Geometry
- 17 November 2011 at 2:15 pm at FU, Arnimallee 2, seminar room, Seminar: Discrete Geometry
- 24 November 2011 at 2:15 pm at FU, Arnimallee 2, seminar room, Seminar: Discrete Geometry

In this lecture series Igor Rivin will talk about (mostly hyperbolic) polyhedral geometry, and its connections to such diverse subjects as:

Computational geometry

Low dimensional topology

Geometric group theory

Number theory

Theoretical physics

The lectures will assume no prerequisites.
