### Abstract:

Provides a generally self-contained course for graduate students and postgraduates on deformations of hyperbolic surfaces and the geometry of the Weil-Petersson metric. It also offers an update for researchers; material not otherwise found in a single reference is included; and aunified approach is provided for an array of results.
