Advances in Homogeneous Dynamics May 11, 2015 - May 15, 2015
To apply for Funding you must register by: March 11, 2015 about 4 years ago
Parent Program:
Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium, Atrium
Organizers LEAD Dmitry Kleinbock (Brandeis University), Hee Oh (Yale University), Alireza Salehi Golsefidy (University of California, San Diego), Ralf Spatzier (University of Michigan)

Show List of Speakers

The Advances in Homogeneous Dynamics workshop will feature the speakers whose work is at the forefront of the field. There will be a panel discussion accompanied by an open problem session to lay out possible directions for the research in homogeneous dynamics. Talks will be in a broad range of topics and this will help to build more connections between researchers interested in dynamical systems, number theory and geometry. For example we hope that the involvement of the participants of the other program held at MSRI during the same academic year (Dynamics on Moduli Spaces of Geometric Structures, Spring 2015) would create new connections between the topics. There will be shorter talks presented by early-career researchers
