About this book

This book consists of 16 surveys on Thurston's work and its later development. The authors are mathematicians who were strongly influenced by Thurston's publications and ideas. The subjects discussed include, among others, knot theory, the topology of 3-manifolds, circle packings, complex projective structures, hyperbolic geometry, Kleinian groups, foliations, mapping class groups, Teichmüller theory, anti-de Sitter geometry, and co-Minkowski geometry. 

The book is addressed to researchers and students who want to learn about Thurston’s wide-ranging mathematical ideas and their impact. At the same time, it is a tribute to Thurston, one of the greatest geometers of all time, whose work extended over many fields in mathematics and who had a unique way of perceiving forms and patterns, and of communicating and writing mathematics.


About the authors

Ken’ichi Ohshika is a professor of mathematics at Gakushuin University, and a professor emeritus at Osaka University. He received his PhD from the University of Tokyo in 1989, and worked at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, the University of Tokyo, and Osaka University before joining Gakushuin University. His interests include Kleinian groups, hyperbolic geometry, Teichmüller theory, and 3-manifolds. 

Athanase Papadopoulos is Directeur de Recherche at the French Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique and the University of Strasbourg. He studied at the Ecole Centrale de Paris (engineering diploma in 1983) and at the University of Paris-Sud, Orsay (PhD in mathematics in 1983). He has a large spectrum of interests and has published more than 30 books.
