Title:Partial hyperbolicity and the topology of 3-manifolds
Seminar:Department of Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:Jana Rodriquez Hertz
Abstract:
A partially hyperbolic diffeomorphism is one having an invariant splitting of the tangent bundle into 3 directions: one expanding -unstable- direction, one contracting -stable- direction, and one intermediate -center- direction. It is one of the natural generalizations of Anosov diffeomorphisms. Interestingly, 3-dimensional topology is a crucial ingredient in the study of such systems. Here we survey directions of research and open problems relating these two fields.
