We survey explicit coordinate descriptions for two (A and X) versions of Teichmuller and lamination spaces for open 2D surfaces, and extend them to the more general set-up of surfaces with distinguished collections of points on the boundary. Main features, such as mapping class group action, Poisson and symplectic structures and others, are described in these terms. The lamination spaces are interpreted as the tropical limits of the Teichmuller ones. Canonical pairings between lamination and… Expand
Higher Teichmüller Spaces: from SL(2,R) to other Lie groups
The first part of this paper surveys several characterizations of Teichm\"uller space as a subset of the space of representation of the fundamental group of a surface into PSL(2,R). Special emphasisExpand

Higher laminations and affine buildings
We give a Thurston-like definition for laminations on higher Teichmuller spaces associated to a surface $S$ and a semi-simple group $G$ for $G-SL_m$ and $PGL_m$. The case $G=SL_2$ or $PGL_2$Expand
Riemann surfaces with orbifold points
We interpret the previously developed Teichmüller theory of surfaces with marked points on boundary components (bordered surfaces) as the Teichmüller theory of Riemann surfaces with orbifold pointsExpand
Laminations from the symplectic double
Let S be a compact oriented surface with boundary together with finitely many marked points on the boundary, and let $$S^\circ $$S∘ be the same surface equipped with the opposite orientation. WeExpand
A uniqueness property for the quantization of Teichmüller Spaces
Chekhov, Fock and Kashaev introduced a quantization of the Teichmüller space of a punctured surface S, and an exponential version $${\mathcal{T}}^q(S)$$ of this construction was developed by BonahonExpand
Laurent phenomenon algebras arising from surfaces II: Laminated surfaces
It was shown by Fock, Goncharov and Fomin, Shapiro, Thurston that some cluster algebras arise from triangulated orientable suraces. Subsequently Dupont and Palesi generalised this construction toExpand
Quivers with potentials associated to triangulated surfaces, Part II: Arc representations
This paper is a representation-theoretic extension of Part I. It has been inspired by three recent developments: surface cluster algebras studied by Fomin-Shapiro-Thurston, the mutation theory ofExpand
Symplectic structures from topological Fukaya categories
The topological Fukaya category is the global sections of a certain sheaf of categories on a Lagrangian skeleton. Nadler has given a combinatorial description of this sheaf in the case of genericExpand
Cluster algebras and triangulated surfaces. Part II: Lambda lengths
For any cluster algebra whose underlying combinatorial data can be encoded by a bordered surface with marked points, we construct a geometric realization in terms of suitable decorated TeichmuellerExpand


Dual Teichm\" uller spaces
We describe in elementary geometrical terms Teichm\" uller spaces of decorated and holed surfaces. We construct explicit global coordinates on them as well as on the spaces of measured laminationsExpand
Moduli spaces of local systems and higher Teichmüller theory
Let G be a split semisimple algebraic group over Q with trivial center. Let S be a compact oriented surface, with or without boundary. We define positive representations of the fundamental group of SExpand
Cluster algebras and Weil-Petersson forms
In our previous paper we have discussed Poisson properties of cluster algebras of geometric type for the case of a nondegenerate matrix of transition exponents. In this paper we consider the case ofExpand
We review both the construction of conformal blocks in quantum Liouville theory and the quantization of Teichmuller spaces as developed by Kashaev, Checkov and Fock. In both cases one assigns to aExpand
We determine that the deformation space of convex real projective structures, that is, projectively flat torsion-free connections with the geodesic convexity property on a compact 2-orbifold ofExpand

Quantum Teichm\"uller space
We describe explicitly a noncommutative deformation of the *-algebra of functions on the Teichm\"uller space of Riemann surfaces with holes equivariant w.r.t. the mapping class group action.
Cluster algebras: Notes for the CDM-03 conference
This is an expanded version of the notes of our lectures given at the conference Current Developments in Mathematics 2003 held at Harvard University on November 21–22, 2003. We present an overview ofExpand

Cluster algebras I: Foundations
In an attempt to create an algebraic framework for dual canonical bases and total positivity in semisimple groups, we initiate the study of a new class of commutative algebras.
