### Blockseminar "Selberg'sche Spurformel"

Die Mathematik der riemannschen Flächen, speziell die derjenigen vom Geschlecht mind. 2, ist außerordentlich reichhaltig. Solche Flächen besitzen hyperbolische Strukturen, d.h. Metriken mit konstanter Krümmung -1.

Wir werden tiefe Zusammenhänge zwischen analytischen Größen (Laplace-Eigenwerte), geometrischen Größen (Längen geschlossener Geodätischer) und arithmetischen Aspekten erkunden. Ein Höhepunkt wird dabei die Selberg'sche Spurformel sein, in der diese Aspekte zusammenfließen.

#### 09/11/2017 | Workshop

### Kickoff meeting of the SPP2026

The principal goal of this meeting is to bring together all SPP members (principal investigators, employees in SPP-projects and associated members) and to inform each other about all the SPP projects.

#### 31/07/2017 | Conference

### Analysis and Geometry on Graphs and Manifolds

The aim of this conference is to bring people together from geometry, operator theory, partial die l equations, probability and combinatorics. A particular focus lies on the connection between a discrete and a continuum viewpoint on the nature of the underlying space.

**Start: **Monday, 31/07/2017 09:00 am**End: **Friday, 04/08/2017 02:00 pm
**Related project(s):****19**Boundaries, Greens formulae and harmonic functions for graphs and Dirichlet spaces

#### 24/07/2017 | Conference

### Curvature and Global Shape

The purpose of the meeting is to study relationships between local and global invariants in Riemannian Geometry. Our intention is to bring together experts in the field as well as young mathematicians.

**Start: **Monday, 24/07/2017 08:00 am**End: **Saturday, 28/10/2017 07:00 pm
