Workshop: Contact Structures, Laminations and Foliations

05.09.2016 – 09.09.2016

Foliations, laminations and branched surfaces are nicely origanized collections of immersed surfaces in 3-manifolds. While laminations can be viewed as partial foliations, branched surfaces consist of pieces of embedded surfaces which intersect each other in a very specific way. Both notions have recently seen interesting applications and their has been considerable progress in the understanding of their interplay.

The Workshop will take place 5-9 September 2016 at the Mathematical Institute of the LMU in Munich.
