Mapping Surfaces to Non-Trivial Planar Domains and to Other Surfaces

18 September 2016 | Talk

In this talk I will discuss my recent work on two inter-playing topics: 1) computation of maps between surfaces, and 2) parameterizations, i.e., embedding surfaces into planar domains.

These two topics are closely related, as surface maps are usually computed via some type of parameterization.

I will explain how non-trivial planar domains such as self-overlapping ones, cone-manifolds, orbifolds, and hyperbolic domains can be used for these tasks, while also presenting two recent results on extending a classic parameterization technique - Tutte's embedding - to the aforementioned Euclidean orbifolds and hyperbolic domains.
