On the geometry of geodesics on Finsler surfaces. Swarthmore Dresden Lectures (2016–17). Swarthmore College Mathematics Department. April 25, 2017

Keynote/Named Lecture

This was the second of two lectures that I gave in the Swarthmore College Distinguished Lecture Series, the Dresden Lectures. This was an introduction to Finsler geometry and, particularly Finsler surfaces for a lay audience, covering their physical motivations and explaining a number of interesting phenomena.
