Quasigeodesic Anosov Flows in Dimension Three

A flow is called 'quasigeodesic' if the flowlines of the lifted flow in the universal cover of the underlying manifold are globally length minimising up to some bounded errors. Quasigeodesic behaviour of flowlines is a very strong tool in the study of geometry and the dynamic properties of flows. It bridges the dynamics of the flow and the large-scale geometry on hyperbolic and CAT(0) manifolds. This area of study was introduced by Cannon and Thurston in their pioneering paper `Group Invariant Peano Curves'. In this talk, we will discuss Anosov flows, which are quasigeodesic.

Anindya earned his Master's degree in Mathematics from the Indian Statistical Institute. Following this, he pursued his PhD at Florida State University under the guidance of Dr Sergio Fenley. Anindya's research interests span across geometry, groups, and dynamics. Currently, Anindya holds a Postdoctoral position at TIFR Mumbai, where he is actively engaged in studying the interplay between hyperbolic dynamics in three dimensions and the large-scale geometry of the associated manifolds.
