Geometry, groups, and dynamics
The concept of geometry evolved in the past two centuries, since the discovery of non-Euclidean and Riemannian geometries. Such geometries underwent a revolution with the work of Gromov and Thurston. Several members of the UMPA have been considerably contributing to these programs. Other kind of geometries (e.g., symplectic, affine, projective, conformal, Lorentzian, holomorphic, ...) keeps fascinating the mathematicians, and in particular the members of the UMPA, for their beauty and their questions.
