5 January to 7 July 2000

**Organisers**: A Katok (*Penn State*), G Margulis (*Yale*), M Pollicott (*Manchester*)

**Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical
Sciences and Warwick MRC joint Workshop**

**Ergodic theory of Z**^{d}**-actions**

**3-7 April 2000**

*(Please note: this
Workshop will take place at the Mathematical Institute of the
University of Warwick)*

**The Workshop.** This workshop is part of a six-month
programme at the Isaac Newton Institute. This programme deals
with ergodic theory and its recent applications to problems in
rigidity of group actions, and number theory. However, the venue
for this meeting will be at the Mathematical Institute of the
University of Warwick. This meeting will also review progress
since the 1993-94 Symposium on the same theme and consolidate
some of the more recent developments.

**The Workshop Organisers.** This meeting will be organised
by M Pollicott (Manchester), K Schmidt (Vienna) and P Walters
(Warwick).

This meeting is supported by the EPSRC and the Isaac Newton Institute. Additionally, there is a limited amount of support available for USA participants (through the generous support of the NSF).

**Other meetings**. There will be other meetings associated
with the programme:10-14 January 2000, Introductory lecture
series; 27-31 March 2000, Rigidity in Dynamics and Geometry; 3-7
July 2000, Conference on Ergodic Theory, Riemannian Geometry and
Number Theory.
