On stationary measure rigidity and orbit closures for actions of non-abelian groups

Time:Fri., 9:00 -10:00 am, Dec.23, 2022

Venue:Zoom ID: 271 534 5558 ;PW: YMSC

Speaker:Alex Eskin (The University of Chicago)


I will describe joint work in progress with Aaron Brown, Federico Rodriguez-Hertz and Simion Filip. Our aim is to find some analogue,in the context of smooth dynamics,of Ratner's theoremson unipotent flows. This would be a (partial) generalization of the results of Benoist-Quint and my work with Elon Lindenstrauss in the homogeneous setting, the results of Brown and Rodriguez-Hertz in dimension 2, and my results with Maryam Mirzakhani in the setting of Teichmuller dynamics.


Prof. Alex Eskin is currently the Arthur Holly Compton Distinguished Service Professor at the University of Chicago. He is a world leading expert in the field of Dynamical System. He received his PhD in 1993 from Princeton University. Prof. Eskin receives many awards and honors that includes invited speaker at 1998 and 2010 ICM, Clay Research Award (2007), Simons Investigator Award (2014), member of AAAS (2011) and National Academy of Science (2015), Breakthrough Prize (2020).

      Non-abelian Hodge theory and higher Teichmüller spaces

      Abstract: Non-abelian Hodge theory relates representations of the fundamental group of a compact Riemann surface X into a Lie group G with holomorphic objects on X known as Higgs bundles, introduced by Hitchin more than 35 years ago. Starting with the case in which G is the circle, and the 19th century Abel-Jacobi's theory, we will move to the case of G=SL(2,R) and the relation to Teichmüller t...

      Renormalization and Rigidity in Dynamical Systems

      Abstract:The ideas of renormalization was introduced into dynamics around 40 years ago. By now renormalization is one of the most powerful tools in the asymptotic analysis of dynamical systems. In this talk I will discuss the main conceptual features of the renormalization approach,and present a selection of recent results. I will also discuss open problems and formulate related conjectures.Sp...
