First class met Tuesday, Aug 29. This meeting was not recorded, and we just discussed the basic plan of the course. Actual course content started on Thursday, Aug 31. The first six lectures will give an overview of the class, using slides I created for a 2-lecture short coruse in Barcelona, April 2021. We then cover the unifomization theorem (following Don Marshall's proof) and Belyi's theorem (following the text of Girondo and Gonzalez-Diez). I will then do a rapid review of quasiconformal mappings in the plane, and then a more careful discusssion of the QC folding theorem. We will end the course with some applications of QC folding: wandering domains, equilateral triangulations of Riemann surfaces, constucting transcendental Julia sets of small dimension, and building meromorphic functions with (nearly) specified singular dynamics.
