Metric spaces and maps between them

Tullia Dymarz, Assistant Professor, Math, UW-Madison

Date and Time: Apr 09, 2013 (12:30 PM)
Location: Orchard room (3280) at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery Building


The goal of this talk is to give some examples of metrics
spaces and to look at properties of different types of maps between
them. One class of examples I will talk about are delta hyperbolic
spaces. These are spaces that are important in certain areas of pure
mathematics but have also been studied in the context of networks.
This will be a general audience talk intended to introduce people to
some of the concepts and ideas studied by mathematicians who study
metric spaces.
