A Special Class of Frobenius Manifolds Associated to Teichmüller Spaces

Marta Mazzocco (University of Manchester)

In this seminar we'll briefly introduce the concept of a Frobenius manifold and show the link with monodromy preserving deformations. We'll discuss the associated Poisson structure and show that the Teichmüller space of Riemann surfaces with one or two holes correspond to degenerate symplectic leaves.
