For hyperbolic surfaces, there is a well-known bijective correspondence between free homotopy classes and closed geodesics. More mysterious is the distribution of certain geodesics, such as those with a bound on intersection number or length. In this talk, we will discuss several important results about hyperbolic surfaces and their geodesics, from classical to modern. Speaker(s): Mark Greenfield (UM)
