Thermodynamic Formalism: Ergodic Theory and Geometry

22-26 July 2019

Organisers: Oliver Jenkinson, Thomas Jordan, Anders Öberg, Richard Sharp, Daniel Thompson

The last decade has seen spectacular and continuing advances in an approach to ergodic theory and its applications using the techniques and tools of thermodynamic formalism. The aim of this workshop is to progress this theory by focusing on a number of outstanding problems and challenges. The workshop will also be an opportunity to celebrate the 60th birthday of Mark Pollicott.
