The theory developed by Thurston, Fried and McMullen provides a near complete picture of the various ways a hyperbolic 3-manifold M can fiber over the circle.

### Seminar Events

##### Dynamics and polynomial invariants of free-by-cyclic groups

University of Illinois

##### Heegaard-Floer homology of algebraic links

The intersection of an algebraic plane curve singularity with a small 3-sphere is an algebraic link. I will explain how to compute the Heegaard-Floer homology of this link in terms of the homologies of certain subvarieties in the space of functions on the plane.
