Topology Seminar: Sam Ballas (UT Austin), 'Convex Projective Structures on 3-manifolds'

In this talk I will introduce convex projective structures as a generalization of hyperbolic structures. After comparing and contrasting these two types of geometry I will discuss results related to rigidity and flexibility in convex projective geometry, with an emphasis on dimension 3.
