Hyperbolic polyhedra and spin networks

Roland van der Veen (UvA)

Abstract: In this talk we will introduce 3-dimensional hyperbolic geometry with a focus on ideal and hyper-ideal polyhedra. We will explain how such polyhedra are closely related to constructions from representation theory known as spin networks.
