Title: CONVEX COCOMPACT SUBGROUPS IN REAL PROJECTIVE GEOMETRY V: Examples from Vinberg's theory of reflection groups in projective space
Abstract: This series of lectures is about a theory of convex cocompactness for discrete subgroups of the projective general linear group acting on real projective space. These groups display geometric and dynamical behavior similar to convex cocompact groups in rank one Lie groups (hyperbolic geometry) with some interesting differences. Some of this lecture series is based on joint work with Francois Gueritaud.
