Abstract:

I will present section 11 of a paper by Marcelo Viana entitled, "Ergodic Theory of Interval Exchange Maps." Section 11 discusses the geometry\topology of translation surfaces which are Riemann surfaces with atlases whose transition functions away from the singularities of the surface are translations in the complex plane.
