The use of dynamical invariants has long been a staple of geometry and topology, from rigidity theorems, to classification theorems, to the general study of lattices and of the mapping class group. More recently, random structures in topology and notions of probabilistic geometric convergence have played a critical role in testing the robustness of conjectures in the arithmetic setting. The program will focus on invariants in topology, geometry, and the dynamics of group actions linked to random constructions. More Information
