Abstract: The Teichmuller space of a surface S, named after the mathematician Oswald Teichmuller, is a complex structures on S up to the action of homeomorphisms that are isotopic to the identity homeomorphism. I will show how to define Teichmuller space using the modular group and how to define a lambda length on it. Then I’ll show how to define higher Teichmuller space using this definition.
