Research interests: Riemann surfaces and Teichmüller spaces, mapping class groups, hyperbolic geometry, low-dimensional topology, dynamical systems, hyperbolic groups, ergodic theory (discrete Laplacian, etc.), complex analysis, Finsler geometry, history and mathematics applied to music theory.
Publications: I have about 110 published papers and 9 books, and I
am the editor of several books. I believe that mathematics finds some of its most beautiful applications in music theory. PublicationsSome of my papers are on the French server HAL
Three reviews of My book Metric Spaces, Convexity and Non-positive Curvature by S. Semmes in the Bull. Amer. Math. Soc. 43 (2006), 435-438, by W. Woess in the Internationale Mathematische Nachrichten Nr. 204 pp. 47-48. and by T. Foertsch in the Jahresbericht der DMV 108 (2008), 61–62
Lobachevsky's
Pangeometry: The following link Pangeometry
contains information about this book (the foreword, the table of
content, and how to order the book).
The Handbook of
Teichmüller theory: I am the editor of the "Handbook of Teichmüller Theory", in several volumes, published by the European Mathematical Society. Volume
I appeared in 2007, Volume II appeared in 2009, Volumes
III in 2012 and IV and V will appear in 2014.

Weekly Seminar I am the organiser of a weekly seminar (Mondays at 2 pm) at the
University of Strasbourg, called Séminaire GT3. The
name
has been coined by Bernard Morin, after Thurston's Notes on the
Geometry and Topology of 3-mainfolds. Direction of Ph.D. theses I have 8 PhD. students: M. Coornaert (obtained in 1991) M. Mesmoudi (obtained in 1994) J.C. Curtillet (obtained in 1998) A. Belkhirat (obtained in 2003) G. Théret (obtained in 2005) O. Malouf obtained in 2012) A. Said (obtained in 2013) V. Disarlo
(obtained in 2013) I also directed in 2010 the Habilitation of Moreno
Andreatta on Mathematics and Music.
