Using the identification of the symmetric space SL(n,R)/SO(n) with the Teichmueller space of flat n-tori, one can study several interesting metrics and compactifications of these spaces, drawing inspiration both from Teichmueller theory and symmetric spaces. In this talk, we will define and study an analog of the Thurston metric, as well as a Thurston-type compactification of these Teichmueller spaces. Speaker(s): Mark Greenfield (U Michigan)
