You are visiting CIRM for two weeks for a research in pairs on the subject of real projective geometry. Can you explain what this is about and tell us about your objectives? According to you, why is this so important for mathematicians to meet up, exchange ideas and work as a group? Had you visited CIRM before? What are for you the advantages of a centre such as this for researchers? Can you describe a typical day at CIRM? You have been traveling the world in recent years for your research work. Is this because you want to remain free? Do you find it's compatible with family life?

Résumé : Inkang Kim works on hyperbolic geometry and symmetric spaces. He works on rigidity and flexibility of discrete groups acting on symmetric spaces. For rigidity side, he proved the marked length rigidity of Zariski dense subgroups of semisimple Lie groups. In the line of Weil's local rigidity, with his collaborators he proved the local rigidity of real and complex hyperbolic lattices in quaternionic hyperbolic spaces. For flexibility side, with Pierre Pansu he characterized the criterion for a deformability to a Zariski dense representation of a surface group representation in semisimple Lie groups. Specially in hyperbolic 3-manifolds, with other collaborators he generalized William Thurston's double limit theorem to any hyperbolic 3-manifold with compressible boundary.
