VENUE
Ramanujan Lecture Hall, ICTS Bangalore

Ergodic theory has its origins in the the work of  L. Boltzmann on the kinetic theory of gases. The closely related field of dynamical systems has a much older origin, going back at least to Newtonian mechanics. Both subjects have since flourished into extremely active subjects with connections to many parts of mathematics and the physical sciences. Progress has been especially rapid in the last few years in differentiable dynamics and homogeneous dynamics. Differentiable dynamics studies flows on smooth manifolds and has links with geometry while homogeneous dynamics is the study of subgroup actions on homogeneous spaces of Lie groups and has connections to number theory. It is the aim of this two week workshop to gather top experts in these two subjects to deliver expositions on the state of the art in these subjects. The first week will be devoted to differentiable dynamics and the second week to homogeneous dynamics.

During the program, the Infosys-ICTS Ramanujan lectures will be delivered by Prof. Elon Lindenstrauss and the ICTS Distinguished lectures by Prof. Marcelo Viana.
