Title: Geometry of Period Domains
Abstract: Period domains are homogeneous complex manifolds that appeared in the study of period of integrals and monodromy groups of families of algebraic varieties. They appear now in many different contexts. I will explain some of this history, including how they can be used to study representations of fundamental groups of algebraic varieties, I will also explain recent joint work with P. Griffiths and C. Robles on geometry of these domains.
