Title:Renormalization and Rigidity
Seminar:Department of Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:Konstantin Khanin, Department of Mathematics University of Toronto and Landau Institute of Theoretical Physics
In the last 25 years renormalization became one of the main tools in the theory of dynamical systems. We shall discuss renormalization theory in the simplest setting of circle dynamics. We plan to present the results in the cases of diffeomorphisms, critical circle maps, and maps with breaks. The relation between hyperbolicity of renormalizations and rigidity theory will be also discussed.
