### Conformal maps between two given domains

Consider two domains \begin{aligned} D_1&=\{x=(x_1,x_2,...,x_n)\in\mathbb{R}^n:x_n\leq 0\},\\ D_2&=\{x=(x_1,x_2,...,x_n)\in\mathbb{R}^n:x_n\leq \psi(x_1,x_2,...,x_{n-1})\}, \end{aligned} ...

### Splitting of the conformal group into $PSL(2,\mathbb{R})$ and other factorizations

In 1+1 dimensions of Minkowski spacetime, the conformal group can be split into two copies of $PSL(2,\mathbb{R})$ acting on null lines. I'm curious to know if a similar split exists for the conformal ...

### Conformal map between flat and hyperbolic torus with a boundary

I am confused because I can define two very different complex structures on the torus with a puncture/boundary. For my first construction, I can imagine removing a disk from a flat torus, inheriting ...

### Do we have uniformization theorems for fractional dimensional spaces?

The Riemann mapping theorem in $\mathbb{R}^2$ is known not to generalize well in higher dimensions and is basically trivial in lower dimensions. I’m interested in how it generalizes for fractional ...

### Riemann mapping theorem with smooth boundary

This is closely related to the question here. The setup is that $U\subset\mathbb{C}$ is an open bounded simply connected domain with $C^\infty$ boundary. If $\phi:U\rightarrow\mathbb{D}$ is a ...

### Conformal diffeomorphism of $\mathbb R^k$

Let $f$ be a conformal diffeomorphism between $\mathbb{R}^k$, where $k\geq 2$, and its Euclidean metric. It follows from complex analysis and Liouville's theorem that $f$ can only be affine. Now, ...

### Numerically compute the Schwarz-Christoffel mapping to the square

I want to map the upper-half plane $$\mathbb H:=\{z\in\mathbb C:\Im(z)>0\}$$ to $[0,1)^2$ by a conformal map. If I got this right, then such a mapping is given by the Schwarz-Christoffel mapping to ...

### How do we solve this rather simple ODE (Loewner equation with driving function $\sqrt t$)?

Remember the following result for the Loewner equation: If $\lambda:[0,\infty)\to\mathbb R$ is continuous, then for all $z\in\mathbb C\setminus\{\lambda(0)\}$ there is a uniqe $\zeta(z)\in(0,\infty]$ ...

### Boundary behavior of conformal map on domain satisfying an exterior sphere condition

I'm in the middle of a project concerning a Bernoulli-type free boundary problem in $\mathbb{R}^2$ and, as part of this project, I would like to understand the boundary behavior of conformal maps on ...

### Explicit triples of isomorphic Riemann surfaces

Inspired by a discussion with Neil Strickland I am very interested to hear of explicit examples (one per answer, please), as follows. A compact Riemann surface can be presented in many different ways....

### Explicit universal covering map for higher genus algebraic curves

Suppose I have a projective plane curve $C = V(F)$ defined over $\mathbb{C}$, where $F$ is some homogeneous polynomial in three variables. For the sake of simplicity, let's assume that $C$ is ...

### Triangulations with discrete metrics and conformal equivalence

A discrete metric for a triangulation of a 2-dimensional manifold is a map associating $\mathbb{R}_+$-valued lengths to all edges, such that the triangle inequality holds on every triangle. In many ...

### What are the generators and relations of the conformal cobordism category?

According to a definition by Segal, a $2$-dimensional CFT is a symmetric monoidal functor from the category of oriented conformal cobordisms to the cateogry of projective complex vectorspaces. Coming ...

### Is there a non-trivial, exact analytic (symbolic) conformal map from some polygon to some rectangle?

I'm looking for any example of a conformal map $m: P \to Q$ where $P$ is some polygon of at least $4$ sides, $Q$ is a rectangle, and and $m$ is not linear (so $P$ and $Q$ are not merely scaled, ...

### Riemann mapping

Let in the complex plane be a bounded Jordan region T (that is a bounded and simply connected set with the boundary a Jordan curve), containing the origin, with its Riemann mapping onto the open unit ...

### Is there a manifold structure on a space of conformal maps?

I would be very grateful for any information or pointers for the following: 1) Fix an open subset $U$ of $\mathbb{CP}^1$. a) Does the set of all holomorphic maps from $U$ to $\mathbb{C}$ (with the ...
