Let S be a closed oriented surface of genus g at least 2. In this seminar, we learn about various aspects of dynamics on Teichmüller space T(S). We start with showing that the space of holomorphic quadratic differentials on a Riemann surface X can be identified with the cotangent space to T(S) at X. We then look at the SL(2,R)-action on T(S). Further topics will be decided during the course of the seminar.
