Teichmüller Theory and Applications to Geometry, Topology, and Dynamics
For my own purposes the Hubbard book is what I’d consider a natural starting point. If you’re more analytically minded, I theoyr Gardiner and Lakic, Quasiconformal Teichmuller theory and Nag, The complex analytic theory hubbad Teichmuller spaces. Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. But the most important novelty is provided by the author’s taste for hands-on geometric constructions and the enthusiasm with which he presents them. Ivanov has a nice review of much of the theory of mapping class groups here.
Looking at my bookshelf, there’s a few other books that come to mind with varying levels of relevance: I have long held a great admiration and appreciation teichumller John Hamal Hubbard and his passionate engagement with mathematics Matrix Editions serious mathematics, written with the reader in mind.
This is because the reader is offered everywhere in the volume the deep insights of the author, who looks at the topics developed from a new vantage point. Hubbard’s book is by far the most readable for the average good student — I don’t think it makes sense to begin with anything else right now. Looking at my bookshelf, there’s a few other books that come to mind with varying levels of relevance:.
This book develops a rich and interesting, interconnected body of mathematics that is also connected to many outside subjects. In addition to the ones already mentioned: Like everything Jost writes, it’s crystal clear if compressed within an epsilson of readability.
The foreword itself is worth reading When the projected series is finished,it should be the definitive introduction to the subject. Sign up using Email and Password.
Teichmuller Theory introduction Ask Question. The primer on mapping class groups, by Farb and Margalit. What is a good introduction to Teichmuller theory, mapping class groups etc. teichmulller
Email Required, tueory never shown. John Hubbard has a recent book on Teichmuller theory which is quite good and geometric. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google.
Jost makes up for the density of the text with its clarity. For connections between all these subjects,there’s probably no better current source then Jost’s Compact Riemann Surfaces.
“And don’t call me Shirley”
I find this to be a very useful reference. Surface Homeomorphisms and Rational Functions From the foreword by William Thurston I have long held a great admiration and appreciation for John Hamal Hubbard and his passionate engagement with mathematics Harer’s lecture notes on the cohomology of moduli spaces doesn’t have all the proofs, but describes the main ideas related to the cell decomposition of the moduli spaces; Springer LNM something, I believe; unfortunately I’m away for the holidays and can’t access Mathscinet to find a precise reference.
Teichmuller theory in Riemannian geometry. Bers’s papers in Analytic functions, Teichmmuller, I commend it to you Its a good book, but it builds up alot of technique before it gets to defining Teichmuller spaces.
Although teichmuller treatment of Teichmuller spaces per se is brief in the book,it contains a wealth of other important topics related to Riemann surfaces. Surface Homeomorphisms and Rational Functions.

Its advantage over Hubbard is that it exists on gigapedia, but I don’t know how it compares to the other books in this list.
From the foreword by Clifford Earle It makes it a wonderfully self-contained resource, but it can thepry be daunting to someone trying to read it casually.
