Hyperbolic geometry was originally understood as geometry of hyperbolic space forms. Recently the notion was redefined to include CAT(0)-spaces and other, even more outlandish objects of metric geometry, such as Gromov hyperbolic spaces. This approach became foundational with many applications in geometric group theory, topology and dynamics. We are planning to explore more recent applications of hyperbolic geometry in its interaction with ergodic theory.
