Abstract

Ultrametric spaces arise in many areas of analysis and geometry. A metric space is called an ultrametric space if its metric satisfies the strong triangle inequality. Examples of such spaces are the fields of p-adic numbers and the endspaces of metric trees. I begin my talk by discussing several examples and some basic properties of ultrametric spaces. I will then discuss chordal ultrametrics as well as decomposition and normalization of ultrametric spaces, which play a crucial role in establishing the rigidity results for Mobius maps between ultrametric spaces. The talk will be accessible to undergraduate students.
