Title: Counting Geodesics on Hyperbolic Surfaces

Abstract: Given a hyperbolic surface, it is a classic question to determine the asymptotic growth rate for different types of geodesics on it. In this talk, I will outline an explicit, hands-on solution for the class of geodesics with both ends up the cusp; describe some applications to number theory; and give an overview of the modern perspective on the problem.
