Beyond Expansion and Arithmetic Chaos

Recent developments in Analytic Number Theory May 01, 2017 - May 05, 2017

Speaker(s): Alex Kontorovich (Rutgers University)

  • affine sieve

  • dispersion method

  • level of distribution

  • thin orbits

  • bilinear forms

We will describe recent progress in our ongoing program with Jean Bourgain to understand a number of different problems through the lens of thin orbits. An important role will be played by the production of levels of distribution (in certain Affine Sieves) which go "beyond expansion." No prior knowledge of these topics is assumed
