Those lecture notes are in line with the joint paintings of the writer and Arthur Fischer on Teichmiiller concept undertaken within the years 1980-1986. due to the fact that then a lot of our colleagues have inspired us to put up our method of the topic in a concise structure, simply available to a large mathematical viewers. despite the fact that, it used to be the invitation by means of the school of the ETH Ziirich to convey the ETH N achdiplom-Vorlesungen in this fabric which supplied the chance for the writer to enhance our examine papers right into a structure appropriate for mathematicians with a modest historical past in differential geometry. We additionally was hoping it's going to give you the foundation for a graduate direction stressing the applying of basic principles in geometry. For this chance the writer needs to thank Eduard Zehnder and Jiirgen Moser, appearing director and director of the Forschungsinstitut fiir Mathematik on the ETH, Gisbert Wiistholz, answerable for the Nachdiplom Vorlesungen and the whole ETH school for his or her aid and hot hospitality. This new method of Teichmiiller conception awarded right here used to be undertaken for 2 purposes. First, it used to be transparent that the classical method, utilizing the idea of extremal quasi-conformal mappings (in this procedure we thoroughly stay away from using quasi-conformal maps) was once no longer simply appropriate to the speculation of minimum surfaces, a box of curiosity of the writer over a long time. moment, many different lively mathematicians, who at a variety of occasions wanted a few Teichmiiller conception, have discovered the classical strategy inaccessible to them
