Model Theory, p-adic Integration, and Applications to Algebra and Number Theory

School
MATHEMATICS

This course is concerned with model-theoretic results for local fields and finite fields, and p-adic and motivic integration. The main results concern analytic properties of Euler products and applications to various zeta functions and Dirichlet series in algebra and number theory. ...

Skew Products and Invariant Graphs

School
MATHEMATICS

This talk concerns the stability and ergodic properties of skew products $T(x, y) =(f(x), g(x, y))$ in which $(f, X, mu)$ is an ergodic map of compact metric space $X$ and $g : X imes Y ightarrow Y$ is continuous. The set $X$ is the base, while $Y$ is the fiber. We consider the case where g is (non-uniformly) contracting. When this contraction is uniform, it can easily be shown that there exists a globally attracting invariant set which is the graph of a function from the base space to the fiber space. Here, we consider the case that the contraction rates are non-uniform and hence specifi ed by Lyapunov exponents and analogous quantities. ...
