Homogeneous Spaces, Diophantine Approximation and Stationary Measures (CNRS Thematic School)
Homogeneous dynamics is the study of asymptotic properties of actions of subgroups of Lie groups on associated homogeneous spaces, including many geometric examples such as Anosov diffeomorphisms of the torus or geodesic flows on negatively curved manifolds. The theory has also deep connections with number theory and diophantine approximations, as shown by Margulis’ proof of Oppenheim conjecture and, more recently, the work of Einsiedler, Katok and Lindenstrauss on Littlewood conjecture.
This workshop will bring together researchers in the domain of homogeneous dynamics and its applications to arithmetic, and will feature the latest developments in the area as well as some mini-courses by some leading experts.
