William Thurston and foliation theory (ENGLISH)
[ 講演概要 ]
Between 1972 and 1976, William Thurston revolutionized foliation theory. Twenty years later, he described this period of his mathematical life in a remarkable paper « On proofs and progress in mathematics ». In this talk, I will begin by a general overview of some of Thurston's contribution to this theory. I will then describe some of the current development.
