School of Mathematical Sciences
Queen Mary, University of London

Wednesday 11th May 2005

11.15-12.15 Gwyneth Stallard (Open University) "Dimensions of Julia sets"
1.30-2.30 Sebastian van Strien (Warwick) "Quasiconformal rigidity and some consequences"
2.30-3.30 Marianne Freiberger (QMUL) "Matings of Hecke groups with polynomials and transcendental functions"
4.00-5.00 Adrien Douady (Orsay) "Thurston's theorem"

The talks will be in Maths 103 (the Mathematics Seminar Room). Coffee and tea will be available in the Mathematics Common Room 102 before the first talk.

All are welcome. The talks are intended for non-specialists as well those working in holomorphic dynamics: they will present a selection of topics which should be of interest to researchers in dynamics in general. The meeting is supported by the London Mathematical Society through the London Dynamical Systems Group.
