Some slides
Here are the slides of some talks I gave recently, in french or
in english. All are in pdf, they might be quite heavy since
they usually contain pictures. Those are pdf files designed to be
used on a computer, with different things appearing at different
times etc. If you wish to have a printable version let me know.
Some of them are designed for a more general audience and are listed
first. There might be some overlap between those slides, but I'm
trying to keep here only the most recent and uptodate ones on each
given theme.
General audience talks
 Histoires de polyèdres,
a general audience talk given in a high school (in Albi), Dec. 12, 2005.
Content: old and new results about 3dimensional polyhedra,
from
Pythagoras to the Bellows conjecture, and beyond.
Minicourses
 Les motifs de cercles et la géométrie hyperbolique : minicours,
shown at the "Journées de Géométrie Algorithmique", 0102/2006.
Partie 1,
Partie 2.
Presents in a fairly general way results on circle patterns, and gives
some broad ideas of the proofs, using them as an excuse to explain
some basic points of 3dimensional hyperbolic geometry. Designed for
an audience closer to computer science than to hyperbolic geometry.
Colloquium talks

Motifs de cercles sur les surfaces singulières, colloquium talk
at the Institut Fourier, Grenoble, Feb. 16, 2006.
Same as above but shorter and for a general mathematical
audience.
 Problèmes anciens et nouveaux sur les polyèdres euclidiens.
Colloquium du département de mathématiques de Nantes, Apr. 8, 2010.
handout version or
exposition version.
In english (except the title).
Seminar/conference talks
 Minimal surfaces in constant curvature
3manifolds, talk at the Newton Institute, Oct. 12, 2005.
Some recent results, mostly joint work with Kirill Krasov,
on some geometric properties of AdS manifolds with cone singularities
along timelike lines.
 Variétés de dimension 3 avec
particules, Darboux seminar, Montpellier, Dec. 16, 2005.
Same as above but with extension in various directions, esp.
3dimensional hyperbolic geometry, and in french.
 On the rigidity of weakly convex
polyhedra, Geometry and topology seminar, U. Penn, Apr. 17,2008.
 Higher Schläfli formulas,
Geometry seminar, Cornell U., Apr. 28,2008.
