Abstract: We introduce “cohomology fractals”; these are a sort of dual to Cannon-Thurston maps for hyperbolic three-manifolds. We have implemented these using a novel ray-tracing algorithm. It is designed to be fast; in fact, it runs in your browser! After recalling some of the history of hand- and computer-drawn images of Kleinian groups, I will explain both cohomology fractals and the implementation of the browser application.
All talks will be held virtually through Zoom. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for talk links.
