Abstract:
Classical Kleinian groups are discrete subgroups of $PSL(2,\C)$ acting on the complex projective line $\P^1$, which actually coincides with the Riemann sphere, with non-empty region of discontinuity. These can also be regarded as the monodromy groups of certain differential equations. These groups have played a major role in many aspects of mathematics for decades, and also in physics. It is thus natural to study discrete subgroups of the projective group $PSL(n,\C)$, $ n > 2$. Surprisingly, this is a branch of mathematics which is in its childhood, and in this article we give an overview of it.

Abstract:
We examine the internal geometry of a Kleinian surface group and its relations to the asymptotic geometry of its ends, using the combinatorial structure of the complex of curves on the surface. Our main results give necessary conditions for the Kleinian group to have `bounded geometry' (lower bounds on injectivity radius) in terms of a sequence of coefficients (subsurface projections) computed using the ending invariants of the group and the complex of curves. These results are directly analogous to those obtained in the case of punctured-torus surface groups. In that setting the ending invariants are points in the closed unit disk and the coefficients are closely related to classical continued-fraction coefficients. The estimates obtained play an essential role in the solution of Thurston's ending lamination conjecture in that case.

Abstract:
For a complex projective space the inertia group, the homotopy inertia group and the concordance inertia group are isomorphic. In complex dimension 4n+1, these groups are related to computations in stable cohomotopy. Using stable homotopy theory, we make explicit computations to show that the inertia group is non-trivial in many cases. In complex dimension 9, we deduce some results on geometric structures on homotopy complex projective spaces and complex hyperbolic manifolds.

Abstract:
This is a survey of the theory of complex projective (CP^1) structures on compact surfaces. After some preliminary discussion and definitions, we concentrate on three main topics: (1) Using the Schwarzian derivative to parameterize the moduli space (2) Thurston's parameterization of the moduli space using grafting (3) Holonomy representations of CP^1 structures We also discuss some results comparing the two parameterizations of the space of projective structures and relating these parameterizations to the holonomy map.

Abstract:
We describe the fundamental groups of ordered and unordered k point sets in complex projective space of dimension n generating a projective subspace of dimension i. We apply these to study connectivity of more complicated configurations of points.

Abstract:
We show the correspondence between left invariant flat projective structures on Lie groups and certain prehomogeneous vector spaces. Moreover by using the classification theory of prehomogeneous vector spaces, we classify complex Lie groups admitting irreducible left invariant flat complex projective structures. As a result, direct sums of special linear Lie algebras sl(2) \oplus sl(m_1) \oplus \cdots \oplus sl(m_k) admit left invariant flat complex projective structures if the equality 4 + m_1^2 + \cdots + m_k^2 -k - 4 m_1 m_2 \cdots m_k = 0 holds. These contain sl(2), sl(2) \oplus sl(3)$, sl(2) \oplus sl(3) \oplus sl(11) for example.

Abstract:
We study the limits of holonomy representations of complex projective structures on a compact Riemann surface in the Morgan-Shalen compactification of the character variety. We show that the dual R-trees of the quadratic differentials associated to a divergent sequence of projective structures determine the Morgan-Shalen limit points up to a natural folding operation. For quadratic differentials with simple zeros, no folding is possible and the limit of holonomy representations is isometric to the dual tree. We also derive an estimate for the growth rate of the holonomy map in terms of a norm on the space of quadratic differentials.

Abstract:
It is shown that moduli spaces of complete families of compact complex hypersurfaces in complex manifolds often come equipped canonically with projective structures satisfying some natural integrability conditions.

Abstract:
One of the basic problems in studying topological structures of deformation spaces for Kleinian groups is to find a criterion to distinguish convergent sequences from divergent sequences. In this paper, we shall give a sufficient condition for sequences of Kleinian groups isomorphic to surface groups to diverge in the deformation spaces.

Abstract:
A Schottky group in PSL(2, C) induces an open hyperbolic handlebody and its ideal boundary is a closed orientable surface S whose genus is equal to the rank of the Schottky group. This boundary surface is equipped with a (complex) projective structure and its holonomy representation is an epimorphism from pi_1(S) to the Schottky group. We will show that an arbitrary projective structure with the same holonomy representation is obtained by (2 pi-)grafting the basic structure described above.
