Title: Fractals and the dynamics of Thurston maps


A Thurston map is a branched covering map on a topological 2-sphere for which the forward orbit of each critical point under iteration is finite.  Each such map gives rise to a fractal geometry on its underlying 2-sphere. The study of these maps and their associated  fractal structures links diverse  areas of mathematics such as dynamical systems, classical conformal analysis, hyperbolic geometry, Teichmüller theory,  and analysis on metric spaces.  In my talk I will report on some recent developments.
