30 June - 4 July 2014
Organisers: Anish Ghosh (TIFR), Alexander Gorodnik (Bristol) and Barak Weiss (Tel Aviv)
in association with the Newton Institute programme Interactions between Dynamics of Group Actions and Number Theory
(9 June - 4 July 2014)
The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers working in number theory, group theory and the theory of dynamical systems to discuss problems arising at the interface of arithmetics and dynamics of group actions. In recent years several promising connections between these fields has been discovered that resulted in striking breakthroughs.
Among the areas addressed during the workshop will be in particular connections between dynamics on homogeneous spaces and Diophantine geometry; exponential sums, dynamics on nilmanifolds and higher order correlations; periodic orbits, period integrals and L-functions including connections with quantum chaos.
Invited speakers will include:
