Lectures on quantum Teichmüller theory I (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Quantum Teichmüller theory leads to a family of unitary infinite dimensional projective representations of the mapping class groups of punctured surfaces. One of the recent applications of this theory is the construction of state integral three-manifold invariants related with hyperbolic geometry.
In these lectures it is planned to address the following subjects:
1) Penner’s coordinates in the decorated Teichmüller space.
2) Ratio coordinates.
3) Quantization.
4) The length spectrum of simple closed curves.
