Statistical aspects of geodesic flows in nonpositive curvature

20-23 January 2020

Organisers: Yuri Lima, Ian Melbourne

Geodesic flows are among the classical examples in dynamics. Much is known for negatively curved manifolds, but for nonpositive curvature the theory still misses some fundamental pieces. The workshop will gather specialists in a variety of techniques related to the dynamics of geodesic flows.

The workshop will begin Monday lunchtime and end Thursday afternoon.

The titles and abstracts are available here.

The program is available here.

There is some funding available for research students studying at universities in the UK who do not have other means of support (eg from their Doctoral Training Awards). Please send enquiries to the organisers.


The workshop is supported by an LMS conference grant and a Newton Advanced Fellowship. Also, Cambridge University Press will be offering discounted books on the topic of the workshop and free online access to selected material from the journal Ergodic Theory and Dynamical Systems.
