William Goldman is fascinated by locally homogeneous geometric structures on manifolds and their classification. The diversity of geometries on homogeneous spaces of Lie groups and the relations between them invites tools from disparate mathematical fields. Among them is symplectic/contact topology, which he hopes to learn while at IAS.
