  •  C304 Wells Hall

Let M be an orientable hyperbolic surface without boundary and let c be a closed geodesic in M. We prove that any side of any triangle formed by distinct lifts of c in the hyperbolic plane is shorter than c. The talk will be presented for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students.
