Introduction to Complex Dynamics in one variable

Speaker:  Mayuresh Londhe

Date: 24th October 2017 (Tuesday)

Time: 09:15 pm – 10:15 pm

Venue: Lecture Hall I, Department of Mathematics


This talk is going to be very introductory. To begin with, I will give a motivation, by using a few examples. We will then see definitions of Fatou and Julia sets with a few historical notes. Towards the end, I will prove some theorems and state a few without proof.
Prerequisites: First course in one variable complex analysis and basics of covering spaces.
