During weeks 2-7 of term 3, this special seminar series will host a series of talks by research visitors and local speakers. Its purpose is to showcase the current interplay between operator algebraic noncommutative geometry and the more traditional fields of dynamics and number theory.
The seminar will meet on Wednesdays from 1-3 pm, except on May 14th, when the meeting will be at 3pm. On May 21st, the seminar will be held as part of a One Day Ergodic Theory Meeting, and there will be a series of three talks.
Topics include boundary actions of Kleinian and hyperbolic groups, arithmetic lattices, subshifts of finite type and class field theory. No prior knowledge of noncommutative geometry is required.
