Description
Bianchi 010
Structure in a locally symmetric space by Jos Leys
The study of discrete subgroups of Lie groups and the associated locally symmetric manifolds has a long and rich history, with powerful interconnections between the geometry of the locally symmetric space, topology of towers of its finite covers, and number-theoretic aspects. More recently dynamical and probabilistic techniques have been fruitfully employed to study these groups and spaces.  The workshop will take stock of recent developments in these highly active fields from a variety of backgrounds.
